Roasted Sweet Italian Peppers
Nothing tastes better on a hot panini than roasted sweet red peppers. There is a particular type of heirloom pepper which has superior flavor – far better than the standard sweet red pepper you’ll find alongside green and colored peppers in the produce aisle of the grocery store.
These are called “sweet italian peppers”, but they’re also known by farmers as “sweet chilis”. Simply wash and core them, slice them in half lengthwise and de-seed, then rub lightly with coconut or olive oil. Sprinkle with a little coarse salt, then roast them.
Hot Logic does a PHENOMENAL job at roasting these. Before, I roasted them in my toaster oven, which took forever and scorched the bottoms. Hot Logic eliminates the scorching affect and roasts them thoroughly without turning them to mush. They were fully roasted within about an hour, but an extra 12 would yield the same result.
If you want to make a meal out of this, you can stuff the peppers with a little rosemary and goat cheese – or really anything you’d like. Cheese, other veggies – even tomato vodka sauce – would all taste delicious.
