I know I am late to the party with oven roasting sweet mini peppers but as they say better late than never! I usually enjoy the mini sweet peppers raw as I love the crunch and the subtle sweetness. Oven roasting them takes them to a whole new level of deliciousness. They become so sweet they are like eating candy. No really they taste like candy. You must make these asap!
When I serve these everyone goes crazy for them! They are so delicious.
Have you seen the half pound bags of mini sweet peppers in the produce department? Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Sprouts and Costco are just a few of the places I have found them at recently. I do buy the organic ones and Whole Foods is the only store that consistently carries them in organic.
Roasting these little gems couldn’t be easier. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. I line my rimmed baking sheets with foil and then top with parchment paper. Wash and dry the peppers. Spread them out on the baking sheets. Roast in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. I don’t turn mine over as they get nicely browned on both sides in my convection oven.
Serve a platter of these as an appetizer or a side dish on your buffet. They are amazing as is! No peeling, no removing the seeds just eat and enjoy. Can you tell it was a rainy day when I took this photo – the lack of natural lighting makes such a difference.
I like a plate of them alone or with another one of my favorite things – a roasted Japanese Sweet Potato dusted with cinnamon. Yum-yum! Chop a few and toss them in a salad, serve over hot brown rice with a splash of balsamic vinegar, toss with hot cooked spaghetti squash with a little roasted garlic or over spiralized zucchini noodles. So many possibilities – I can’t wait to hear how you decide to enjoy yours!

Those peepers look amazing & so you do you Tami!!! The flowers are gorgeous!
So happy all is well & the granddaughter is adorable! Yes, they are fun!!!!
Being a grandparent is the best thing ever! I hope all is well with you.
I’m late to the party like you, Tami. I made some of these a month ago, and totally agree: they taste like candy! So delicious. My husband is sensitive to smells, so I can’t roast to charred very often. These will be on my list for the next roasting session, though!
Love hearing about sweet Alma. Hasn’t this year flown by?! We are so enjoying our grandson too. He’ll be 2 in July. It just keeps getting better ❤️❤️❤️
Hi Colleen – I guess we didn’t know what we were missing out on with those roasted peppers! So glad we got in on the fun though – they are spectacular! The past year did fly by way too fast but it sure has been fun. I am so glad you are enjoying your grandson and you are right it just keeps getting better and better!
Hi Tami, I want to thank you for all you are doing. I know how much I look forward to your videos. Also somewat new at this way of life and I find I am not loosing as much weight as I would like. I recall you mentioned dealing with your thyroid and how you dealt with that, I would love to hear more.
We have seven grandchildren and enjoy them tremendously, they are what keep us going. Thanks again. Priscilla
Thank you for your kind comments. I do have hypthyroidism and take Levothyroxine for it. I had to go with a very low fat diet in order to lose the weight I gained when my thyroid problems started. That means, no oil, no nuts, no tofu, no avocado, no seeds – that did it for me. I learned about calorie density when I joined Chef AJ’s Ultimate Weight Loss Program and that is how I eat. Now that I am at a healthy weight I can eat a little bit of tofu or avocado when eating out on occassion but I adhere to the low fat regimen and the weight stays off. I highly recommend joining her program and learning about how to lose weight and keep it off. It is the best thing I ever did for my weight loss and my sanity! Congratulations on the seven grandchildren! Being grandparents is the best gift ever! Hugs, Tami
Love the flowers!!! In North Dakota its 9*, and we still have over 2’ of snow on the ground!
I love the picture you guys are adorable and I agree grandchildren are the best! I only have one. She is in Texas and I am in New York but I try to get there as much as I can. I love spending time with her!
I toasted some today and they were yummy!!
I can’t believe how easy and delicious these are!! I had a bag of the mini peppers in the fridge that I completely forgot about and saw this recipe and knew I had to try. They turned out so good!! I ended up munching on the whole tray just eating them by themselves 🙂
I am so glad you tried it and liked it! They are like eating candy when cooked this way – so sweet!
