Roasted peppers


October 14, 2012 by Bloke In A Kitchen

This is a great way to make use of lovely colourful sweet peppers, especially if you can pick up a big bag of them going cheap.  They can be stored in the fridge for several days, ready to be added to a dish at short notice.  I love these peppers with hummous and wraps / pitta bread, stirred into plain pasta, or in a warming vegetable lasagne.

They’re lovely slow roasted with just a little olive oil and seasoning, (giving them plenty of time in the oven really brings out their glorious natural sweetness), but also try with the optional balsamic vinegar and a touch of sugar – really makes this a bit special without overpowering the taste.

Ready for the oven!


3 or 4 large peppers, (different colours, i.e. red, green, yellow, orange) de-seeded and cut into large slices

1 large red onion

3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar (optional)

1 teaspoon sugar (optional)


1. Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4 / 180c / 350f
2.  Chop and prepare the peppers, red onion and garlic.  Place these in a large oven proof dish.
3.  Add the olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, balsamic vinegar and sugar.  Stir well so that the ingredients are all well combined.
4.  Place on the middle shelf of oven, and cook slowly for one and half hours to 2 hours, stirring once or twice during cooking.  Peppers should be ‘reduced’, softed and sweet.
