Oven Roasted Mini Sweet Peppers

Read on for the recipe!

I first discovered mini sweet peppers at Costco. While I don’t often buy fresh produce in bulk for our little family of three, I’m so glad I made an exception for these little guys! They shrink when you roast them, and we finished the entire bag in just one night! I was so happy to watch my family reaching for second servings of vegetables, that I just had to share the recipe!

This is the best healthy summer side dish!

These roasted mini sweet peppers:
  • Require almost no prep or cleanup
  • Are easy enough for beginner cooks
  • Are rich in Vitamins C and A
  • Make a quick and easy side dish for weeknights

Variations

I make these roasted mini sweet peppers with fresh cilantro and Mexican oregano for a little South-of-the-Border flavor, but you can easily swap out the herbs to change the flavor profile. Here are some suggested variations:
  • Oregano, crushed red pepper, and fresh basil
  • Italian seasoning blend
  • Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute
  • Costco No-Salt Seasoning Blend

Serving Suggestions

Toss these oven-roasted peppers into a taco salad, slice them thin and serve atop crackers with cheese, or enjoy them as a side with any of the following dishes:
