How to Roast Peppers on a Gas Stove

How to "Roast" Bell Peppers Without Turning On Your Oven


While I normally roast peppers following the traditional method (in the oven) or on the grill, sometimes I get lazy and simply throw them directly on the gas stove like I'm a Spanish grandma. Here's how you do it:

  1. Turn the burner's heat up to high, and place the peppers over the flame.
  2. Let them cook until blackened and charred, turning every couple of minutes to burn each part of the pepper, rearranging the pepper over the flame for an even char.
  3. The rest of the procedure is the same: once charred, place the peppers in a plastic-wrap-covered bowl or brown paper bag to steam. When cooled, peel, slice, and use.
