Did you know that you can make roasted peppers in the slow cooker? You can! They turn out with a flavor just like peppers roasted in the oven or over a flame but they're easier to make, and to peel!
A few weeks ago I wanted to make a slow cooker red pepper soup. I started by putting some halved bell peppers into my slow cooker for a while. What came out was a delightful surprise: Soft-fleshed peppers with a flavor just like roasted peppers.

The best part was that unlike with other methods for roasted peppers that I’ve tried, the skins came off of these really easily.

Yes, I do know about the trick of putting hot roasted peppers into a paper bag to steam them a bit and make the skins come off more easily. I’ve never found that it works super-well.

Regardless, with this roasted bell pepper method, there’s no need for a paper bag. The peppers have essentially been steamed to cook and so the skins come off with a tug. Note: This has turned out to be true for about 90% of the peppers that I’ve roasted in this way. There has been the odd stubborn one. If you get a stubborn one, use a paring knife to help get the peel off.

Once you have the peppers roasted, you can use them to make this recipe for Chilled Roasted Red Pepper Soup.

Description

Did you know that you can make roasted peppers in the slow cooker? You can! They turn out with a flavor just like peppers roasted in the oven or over a flame but they’re easier to make, and to peel!

Ingredients

    •  1 tsp. olive oil
    • 5 red bell peppers, halved and seeded

Instructions

  1. Rub the inside of the slow cooker with the olive oil.
  2. Add the pepper halves.
  3. Cook on high for 3 hours stirring halfway through.
  4. Turn off the slow cooker and remove the lid. Let the peppers cool.
  5. Grasp the peel of a pepper half at an edge and gently tug to remove it in one piece. Sometimes the peel doesn’t come off easily. Use a paring knife to remove the peels in these rare cases. Repeat with remaining peppers.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

    …” the trick of putting hot roasted peppers into a paper bag to steam them a bit and make the skins come off more easily. I’ve never found that it works super-well.” HINT: that’s because you shouldn’t use a paper bag, you have to use a plastic zip lock bag other wise the steam from the peppers just makes the bag wet and that’s why this method didn’t work for you. Try it. Skins come off easy every time.

      Thanks Judith. I’ve actually tried it with a couple kinds of bags and they still often need to be scraped off with a paring knife. Oh well!
