The colorful peppers are such a delight to look at, and they can perk up just about any main dishes you pair them. I especially love making these to accompany any summer BBQ. :)

Ingredients for roasted sweet mini peppers

We need:

Since this recipe doesn’t need many ingredients, choosing the best quality of ingredients is a must.

For example, use sea salt or Himalayan pink salt instead of table salt. Also, buy a small block of high-quality Parmesan cheese and grate it as necessary.

Tips

1. Add herbs

Although these peppers are lovely and delicious with minimal ingredients, you can add herbs to perk them up even more. My favorite is to add about 12 teaspoon of dried oregano and 3 sprigs of fresh thyme along with the salt and pepper, then add about a handful of chopped fresh basil to the roasted peppers.

2. Use a broiler

If you prefer to char and blister the peppers, use your oven broiler and broil until you see some chars and blisters, about 5 minutes.

3. Use a grill

You can use a charcoal/gas grill to grill these peppers, especially if you are also grilling other food for your BBQ event. Or, you can cook the peppers on a stove-top grill pan or even a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet using your stove.
