Low carb cooking – Roast pepper magic

One of my favourite low carb weekend meals has to be a cheese platter! Some local cheeses, olives and charcuterie are a winning combination of low carb treats! To balance the meal out a bit, I love adding a fresh Caprese salad into the mix but my favourite vegetable accompaniment to a cheese platter has to be roast peppers!

This roast pepper recipe is so simple and so delicious, I could eat a whole batch by myself! I’m not a fan of green peppers, so I only use red, yellow and orange peppers, but that’s just me, feel free to add green peppers if you choose!

Ingredients

  • Mixed peppers web4 big or 6 small mixed peppers
