Easy Oven Roasted Pepper Recipe

I love this recipe because it’s simple to make AND it turns out delicious. I like to make a big batch of these peppers and keep them in the fridge to use on sandwiches, in burritos, as a side dish – you name it. You can use any color of pepper and I also like to throw in onions as well.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut peppers into large chunks – about 8-12 per pepper.  Spray a cookie sheet/jelly roll pan with cooking spray or brush with olive oil.  Spread the pepper on the pan in a single layer.  Spray with cooking spray or brush with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt.

Cook 20 minutes.  Raise oven temp to 425 degrees.  Turn the peppers and cook for another 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool.

  1. When peppers are on sale i buy a bunch and roast them, a lot cheaper than buying them in a jar!!

  2. Oh these look really good! I will have to try this! I love to make stuffed peppers but have never tried something like this!

  3. looks good,ill try it..thanks

  4. Looks so good. Many years ago, my mom use to saute peppers, onions, tomatoes and put whatever veggies in there and they were the best.

  5. Yum! I haven’t made peppers in so long, this way of roasting them is great! I often see peppers in the reduced produce isle, and they are perfect for cutting up and roasting like this, as I typically fry them, but this is much healthier!

  6. Roasting brings out the sweetness in veggies. Thanks for reminding me to do this.

  7. I don’t have the patience for this =P I’d just saute my peppers. Does it taste better oven-roasted? Lol

  8. Looks yummy! I like roasted peppers.

  9. Sounds delicious and is low calorie to boot!

  10. Can these be frozen? I’d like to roast a bunch, and have them ready to put into chili.
