Roasted Peppers Recipe Ingredients
This easy recipe has just a few simple ingredients!
BELL PEPPERS – Use a colorful mix of red, green, orange, or yellow bell peppers for this recipe. Or if desired, just pick one color—it’s the chef’s choice!
OIL – Olive oil tastes the best in this recipe. But feel free to use any type of preferred oil, like avocado oil or grapeseed, which both have a mild flavor and a higher smoke point.
GARLIC – Freshly minced garlic is the best, but a sprinkle of garlic powder will taste terrific, too!
SEASONING – Salt & pepper to taste, & Italian seasoning makes everything taste better. This versatile seasoning works on everything from fish to veggies, and this recipe is no different. Make your own blend or use a store-bought variety.
