Skinned Capsicums



0 portion(s)

  • 1000 g red capsicum, or any amount that will fit in Varoma
  • 1000 g water

Recipe's preparation

  1. Cut each capsicum into lengths, using the crease line as a guide (this will make it easier to skin them after steaming).

    Discard stalk, seeds and pith.

    Place pieces onto Varoma base and tray.

  2. Add water to TM bowl, place Varoma in position and steam 30-40 minutes Varoma temperature Speed 2. 

    Time will depend upon the freshness of your capsicums -  extend if necessary (ensuring you always have water in your TM bowl!).

  3. When cool enough to handle, peel skin off starting from the point end (ie opposite end to the stem).

You can save HEAPS by doing these as they are quite expensive in the deli section of the supermarket and may contain foods or additives that you are choosing to delete from your diet.

Any volume that fits into your Varoma can be steamed - same time for each batch regardless of quantity, just make sure you have enough water in your TM bowl to last the distance!

These are vey useful to add to many tomato or Medeterranean style dishes as many people cannot digest the skin of capsicums.

You can also preserve them in a mix of vinegar and salt with your own secret herbs and spices added! Great if you have a glut of them or are gluten free and would like to preserve in apple cider vinegar.

  • Not quite the same as they

    Not quite the same as they haven't been charred or roasted to infuse the smokey flavour but for many recipes its the sweetness that comes from them being cooked and the lack of skin that's important.

    Do these have the same flavor as roasted capsicums that you do in the own?  tmrc_emoticons.)
