Roasted Red Peppers in Olive Oil

The most famous red peppers in Greece come from Florina and they are truly so delicious. Ideally you want to make his dish with Florina peppers, however, the next best thing is red bell peppers. If you find the long red sweet peppers, you can use those instead of the traditional red bell peppers.

  • 5 red bell peppers (or 6 medium)

  • 1 tbsp. dried oregano

  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly

  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 2 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Cut the stems from the tops of the red bell peppers. Then, cut in half and remove the membranes and seeds. Wash and place in a non-stick baking pan. You can spray with cooking spray or you can brush some extra olive oil for added taste. Omit it, if you are watching your calories. Trust me, there will be plenty of Olive Oil later.
Place on top rack of your oven and broil. Be careful not to burn the peppers. You definitely want them browned and blistered, but you don’t want them burnt black. This process should take about 10-15 minutes, but please watch carefully.
Remove the bell peppers and place them in a zip lock bag for 10 -15 minutes. Do not leave them to cool too much because it will be harder to peel the peppers especially if you are using smaller one. Take each pepper and remove the skin. This should be very easy to do if the peppers are done. If they are under-done, then they will not peel away.
Place the peppers in a shallow dish. (I prefer a white platter for a dramatic presentation. It’s all about the dramatization dear). Top with the garlic slices, then the olive oil, and vinegar. Then finish the toping with a nice layer of dried oregano, salt and freshly ground pepper. Enjoy. This is absolutely incredible. Your guests will want the recipe!
Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Kali Orexi!


If you are serving warm, then you can even add grated parmesan right before serving. However, if you serve them cold, then omit the parmesan cheese.
