How to easily make homemade Marinated Roasted Peppers and use on salads, sandwiches or turn into pasta sauces.
Use these peppers to make my Roasted Red Pepper Hummus for a quick and healthy appetizer dip.
Roasted peppers are incredibly easy to make at home. You can have a jar ready to enjoy on salads, sandwiches or blend into pasta sauces. Perfect DIY project when you can buy a bunch of peppers on sale or if you grow them in your garden. Quickly char bell peppers on your grill or under the broiler, place in a paper bag to steam, peel and chop and place in a jar with a simple marinade. After an overnight chill in the fridge, you have a jar full of peppers to enjoy!
I always enjoy making things I normally buy in the store. It's fun and satisfying and nice to know you can whip it up easily. And this recipe is incredibly easy!
- bell peppers
- olive oil
- lemon juice
How to make marinated roasted red peppers?
Roasting brings out the rich flavors of the vegetable and it's my favorite way to prepare and enjoy them. For this recipe, I used my oven on it's broil setting to get the skin blistered and charred. The red pepper blackened quicker than the yellow one but both were done in the same time. The smell of roasting peppers is fantastic!
How to use them?
I love using roasted peppers to blend into a pasta sauce and toss with fettuccine noodles and chicken. So good! My Hubby loves them on sandwiches and the salads are always a huge hit. These peppers add not only a delicious roasted flavor but also a pop of color. And colorful food is always more fun to eat!

I'm really excited to try these with the hummus recipe on your website. How long are the peppers good for once in the jar? Thanks!!
Hi Tiffany! I think they will be good for at least a week in the fridge. I hope you enjoy the hummus!
Great video! Now I'm tempted to make this! 🙂
This is genius! I have never thought to make my own roasted peppers at home. Definitely giving this a go soon. 🙂
Sending this over to my dad right now! He'd love them!
Oh how I LOVE these!! They are fantastic!!
I love marinated peppers! I use them very often in rice salads or on bruschetta! Delicious!
Having a jar of these on hand for salads, pizza, sandwiches, and whatnot is about the best kind of "money" in the bank!
Oh the possibilities! I can't wait until I can marinate and roast all my garden peppers!
I totally envy you the peppers straight from your garden! The best!
There are so many things you could do with these, they look great!
