Our market had a fantastic sale on red peppers at the beginning of the week, so I bought a ton of them. However, I did not feel like making something fancy, so I decided to follow my mom’s old trick: just bake. I simply put them in the oven and voila, this magic dish appeared. This recipe really takes no effort. Wash, turn, bake. That’s it!

I enjoyed them that night next to my Greek Salad (the warm peppers made the feta literally melt in my mouth), while my hubby had them as a side dish to his grilled chicken.

The next day I used them in a sandwich for lunch. And at night, when I had a bit more time I used the leftovers to make a tomato and roasted red pepper cream soup.

1 vegetable, so many ways to use it. Plus red peppers are full of vitamin-C, just in time to fight the changing weather and all the flus that are going around these days.
