Roast peppers and garlic cloves over hot coals, on a grill or under the broiler until charred, turning to roast all sides. Once the skin of the peppers wrinkle and char and garlic has charred spots, remove from heat. Place peppers in a covered bowl until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes, then lift off skins. Slice peppers lengthwise into strips. Squeeze roasted garlic cloves to remove garlic from peel.
