Assorted Grilled Peppers: Some things are just better fresh!

May 03, 2008

I know that you can buy roasted peppers just about anywhere nowadays, but they just don’t taste as good as the ones I make myself. I’m not sure why that is, except possibly their freshness—I just know that the flavor is totally different and that with a grill pan it is so easy to do there’s no reason not to.

Roasted Peppers

You can keep them for a week in the refrigerator. I don’t add any olive oil because I find it alters the natural, subtlety of the peppers and that’s what I like best.

Cut Peppers

They are perfect for adding a burst of flavor to sandwiches such as smoked Gouda with grilled peppers. Also try it with or without black forest ham or added to salads. I love putting a piece on top of cheese as a snack or appetizer, or on vegetables to add color and as well as great taste.

I use green and red peppers, because I find they peel better then the multi-colored ones.

Roasted Peppers

3 peppers

• Place the grill pan in the oven, about 2/3 of the way up
• Pre-heat the pan under the broiler for about 10 minutes or until it is very hot
• Place the peppers on the pan under the broiler
• When the skins start to burn, turn the peppers making certain the skins are well charred
• Once the outside of the peppers are completely burned place them in a brown paper bag or in a covered plastic container
• Close the bag or container tightly to let the peppers steam and cool off
• Once they are cool you should be able to easily peel the all the skins off
• Use immediately, or store them in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to a week

When it’s cold outside, soup feels like the perfect food. I was in the mood for a thick tomato soup. I’d never made one before so it was fun to figure out how to do it. The great part of making this soup is that it is easy and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients. I remembered my mother making tomato soup to serve when...

Here is an excerpt from my book le Kitchen Cookbook. Adding flavor is a component to cooking that is essential. The more we know about how to add, balance, or counteract flavors, the more we have control over what we cook.
And that’s when cooking gets to be fun. Including 3 flavor enhancers I won't cook without. . .
