Roasted Red Peppers with Garlic and Olive Oil
Roasting intensifies the flavors of vegetables, and red peppers are no exception. You can roast these peppers in the oven or on the grill. However you roast them, just make sure they are cooked until softened but not too charred. You can prepare these peppers through step 2 up to 1 day ahead; cover and chill. Let come to room temperature before serving and drain off excess liquid. Be sure to use very fresh garlic; old garlic will taste bitter and strong.
