Roasted Red Bell Peppers
Very easy, very healthy. Take whole red bell peppers, wash, cut in half, remove stems and seeds. Place a tiny bit of oil in a baking tray and place bell peppers cut side down. Move the peppers around to spread out the oil. Put in toaster oven or regular oven on broil, about 20 minutes, but keep an eye on them (depending on what temp you broil at) until the skin starts to blacken. Take out of oven and immediately put in an air tight tupperware and shut the lid. Leave them in there until the peppers are completely cool, then take them out and peel off the outside layer. Cut up into pieces, garnish how you'd like (I tried basil, oregano, and a bit of black pepper). Use in a sandwich with some mozzarella or dice it up to use in a chip/cracker dip.
