This Perfectly Roasted Peppers Recipe is sure to become a low-carb kitchen staple!

Oven-roasted bell peppers take on a completely different flavor profile than raw peppers have. Bell peppers have a smoky-sweet caramelized flavor, making them ideal for use in so many dishes.  Roasted red or green peppers are amazing on pizza or mixed into a skillet with onion and sausage. But that’s not where the story ends!

Why We Love Oven Roasted Bell Peppers

When it comes to low-carb cooking, versatility is the name of the game. To stay on track at dinner time, it’s super important to have easy toppings and healthy mix-ins on hand. That’s where this simple roasted bell peppers recipe comes in handy! We love to have a container of these on hand in the fridge to add extra flavor to salads, frittatas, casseroles, or appetizers. The uses for bell peppers are endless, and they are super easy to make in the oven.

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.
