When we moved to the apartment we gave away our grill to our next door neighbor (which he was very grateful for).
We didn’t really grill that often since we didn’t have a lot of time but when we did, we loved it.
We could have a grill in the apartment but due to our already limited amount of space we are using the balcony to store the only two plants we kept from the porch and the backyard, two bikes, and four pairs of hiking shoes/boots… so not really a lot of space.
I wanted to eat grilled veggies but with no grill I thought to try to oven-roast the sweet and delicious peppers that were staring at me with those bright and beautiful colors.
This was very simple to make and I served them on a leaf of romaine lettuce with breaded eggplant cutlets (from Trader Joe’s) and homemade hummus.
The combination of flavors was more like an experiment that I was willing to test. I loved it. It did not leave me feeling as if I ate three Thanksgiving meals. The amount was perfect and the kids ate them without complaining.
These vegan roasted peppers had very few ingredients. I love the natural flavor of peppers so I didn’t want to mask it with too much seasoning.
My daughter and I went on a run this week. It started raining and since she had track meet the day after, we thought it was best for her to only run two miles but truthfully, any mile ran with her, it is great quality time spent with her! I continued running for 2 extra miles (total of 4). I wanted to run more but I had just ran my long run the day before (11 miles) AND I was wearing ankle weights and one of them was scratching my skin.
Now on to the recipe…
