For the red pepper pizza recipe in next week’s meal plan, we listed 1/2 cup of jarred roasted sweet (bell) peppers as one of the ingredients.
If, however, you’re feeling a little adventurous, you can roast your own bell peppers. The flavor and texture will be a heck’uva lot better than the bottled variety!
This invaluable bite-size video tutorial explains precisely how it’s done, and how easy it is.
Oh, and if you do decide to roast your own pepper, be sure to delete the jarred peppers from the itemized grocery list that came with your meal plan (it’s under “CANNED/BOTTLED/OTHER”), and add 1 fresh red bell pepper to the PRODUCE list.
