Making your own roasted bell peppers are so darn easy. I like to make a large batch and store in a bottle in the fridge. This way my teenage boys can use in their sandwiches, wraps or whatever way they fancy. I stick it in the fridge right at eye level so they can see it. I've noticed it works;) . They opt for this versus cutting their own veggies, because mom has already cut it for them!! Well at least they are getting veggies into their sandwiches and not just eating cheese on bread from being lazy!!!.
These roasted peppers are so tasty in a wrap or sandwich or even on pizza. All you have to do is be creative. Start with two thick slices of your choice of bread, add these peppers on top of cashew butter some avocado, cherry tomatoes, arugula, sprouts, freshly ground pepper and salt and you have a nice tasty sandwich or wrap that is satiating and filling. If you eat cheese, add thinly sliced cheddar cheese - yum yum yum a delicious sandwich in under 5 minutes. What more can you ask for!
