Roasted Peppers Recipe

I love roasted vegetables, and roasted peppers are no exception!  Roasting brings out the best flavor out of vegetables.  These roasted peppers have deep caramelized grilled flavor, mmmm!

Homemade Roasted Peppers

Homemade roasted peppers taste so much better than the roasted red peppers from a jar! Fresh and homemade is always best! Plus the homemade ones don’t have any chemicals or preservatives!

Making homemade roasted peppers is really easy.  All you need to do is slice the peppers into quarters, remove the seeds and membranes, toss in olive oil, sprinkle with seasonings and bake in pre-heated 450F oven for 20 minutes. Hot oven temperature is key to getting these peppers perfectly roasted!  So yummy!

How To Make Oven Roasted Peppers

You can use any color bell peppers – green, red, orange, yellow – they all taste amazing!  For some reason, the jarred roasted peppers are usually just red, but any color roasted pepper is delicious! The cooking time is the same no matter what color peppers you use. For the most visually impressive results, use a mix of different color peppers like I have on these pictures!  For an even more colorful dish with a mix of different color veggies, check out my rainbow roasted vegetables recipe :)

These roasted peppers can be served hot or cold, both versions are equally delicious! They keep well in a refrigerator for up to 5 days, so they are a great make-ahead dish!  Make a huge batch of these roasted peppers and eat them throughout the week straight from the fridge!  Having ready-to-eat healthy foods on hand is always a great feeling!  For more healthy meal prep options for stocking your fridge, check out my meal prep recipes.

    I love roasted bell peppers and this is one of the best recipes! I like to cut mine the same way – except I add one more slice across the middle, so they’re eighths instead of quarters. But my prep time is Much more than 5 minutes; maybe just cutting into quarters is better. It takes time to get all the seeds off. – I also wonder if they need to be flipped halfway through? Or I’d not, which side goes down. Oh and mainly why does the oven need to be at 400? Mine seem to char too much but if I remove them sooner they aren’t tender enough. They start to sizzle rather quickly so I turned it down to 425°. Maybe my apt. oven runs hot. But I don’t want them too burnt; yours look good; I want the flesh to be cooked too though. – I dung see any comments here, so I’m not sure how this works. Lots of your recipes look really good, though! Rainbow roasted veggies; roasted eggplant.. I’ll be trying more in the future!
