Grilled peppers are one of the easiest side dishes to pull together. Not only are they full of flavor, but they also add an element of vibrant color to the plate!

Did you know… Bell pepper is not only an excellent source of carotenoids, but also a source of over 30 different members of the carotenoid nutrient family. A recent study from Spain took a close look at vitamin C, vitamin E, and six of these carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin) in all commonly eaten foods and found that only two vegetables contained at least two-thirds of all the listed nutrients. The winners were sweet bell pepper and tomato!

How to Make:

  1. Prepare the grill for cooking using medium-heat. You may also roast the peppers in the oven. For this option, preheat the oven to 400° and place the rack in the middle of the oven, then roast for 20 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peppers, oil and seasonings.
  3. Cook the peppers over a hot grill until the peppers are tender and their skin is blackened in spots.
  4. Serve immediately or at room temperature.

Notes:

One of the interesting things about mini peppers is that you don’t need to core them. There are practically no seeds! This makes them quite easy to prepare.
