How to roast bell peppers?
There’s a lot of different ways to roast the bell peppers. For example roasting on the fire and peeling the skin, or roasting on the gas cook top and the also peeling the skin. It’s completely up to your preferances how are you going to roast these peppers. Sure best result is fire roasting, but sometimes it can be so difficult and time consuming.
For this recipe I will give you easiest and laziest option to roast the bell peppers. I will be roasting my bell peppers in the oven. Yes you’ve read it right. I find the taste to be as great when roasting bell peppers in the oven too, and so easy as well!
How to actually roast them? Simple! Just cut bell pepper in half and remove the seeds. Add some salt and olive oil and rub them with your hands very well. You shoulld roast in the hotest preheated oven you can possibly have on your cook. That’s how the peppers get black skin quick and they have better taste.
Another tip is to roast them in a deeper baking dish so you will be able to colect the juices from bell pepper. I love to add that to the marinade, it’s so much flavour.

The Marinated roasted red peppers are easy to make, you just need to have a few simple ingredients on hand.
- Olive oil. Here you must have a good quality olive oil as it gives so much flavour to the marinade!
- Garlic. I love loads of garlic here. Just in general I love puting garlic to everything so here I would say is a must. If you are not a big fan of garlic reduce the amount of it!
- Fresh parsley. Parsley is a must as well. I love the flavour going together with the bell peppers. Make sure it’s chopped very fine.
- Lemon juice. Good old lemon juice is a perfect acid for this marinade.
