Roast Shepherd Peppers

Roast Shepherd Peppers

When it comes to food there is nothing better than simple and delicious!

Roasted peppers are one of my favourite and easy vegetable dishes. I usually use bell peppers in red, orange and yellow. I’m not a big fan of green bell peppers unless they’re in a stir fry with lots of onions and beef or chicken. Hmmmm now I’m hungry for fajitas!

Shepherd peppers are different from bell peppers in that they are long and much larger. They have a much sweeter, juicier flavour and a thinner skin (which you can peel off when you roast them). They are so easy to work with — you can roast them like what I’ve done with my recipe, below. You can chop them up for a salad or slice them perpendicular to the length and eat them raw or with a dip, like hummus or baba ganoush.

Nine 30-Day Healthy Eating Challenges

A few months ago my partner and I decided to give up desserts for 30-days. We both felt that we had been indulging a bit too much. It was May, sun-tanning weather was close at hand, and World Pride about to hit Toronto in just over a month. We had more than enough “vanity reasons” to…
