This is my favorite go-to recipe! It's super simple and unbelievably tasty. I literally started eating red peppers last year when I moved to Spain and was served these roasted peppers and fresh bread.....I fell completely in love and now they have become a staple in my house as I prepare them at least twice a week.
Spanish roasted red peppers in garlic olive oil are generally served warm with fresh bread as a tapa or as a light lunch. We also make them into sandwiches using fresh crusty buns.
