Ingredients for Marinated Mini Bell Peppers:
- Where to Buy Mini Sweet Peppers: Costco sells 1 1/2 lb bags of mini peppers and most grocery stores carry then in 1 to 2 lb bag sizes.
- Rinse and dry the peppers thoroughly since water on the peppers can cause splatter while cooking. No other prep is required for mini peppers.
- We use equal parts dill and parsley (1 cup each before chopping). If you have more parsley than dill, or vice versa, it will still work well.
Bell Pepper Nutrition & Calories:
- Bell peppers are rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.
- Sweet peppers are loaded with an unusually high concentration of antioxidants
- They are also high in potassium and fiber.
See the marinated bell pepper calories in the nutrition label below. Remember the salt is higher in the nutrition facts than what is actually consumed since you (hopefully) won’t be drinking the marinade.
How to Make Grilled/ Roasted Bell Peppers:
Preheat your grill to medium/low heat (300˚F). Place rinsed and dried mini peppers in a large mixing bowl, drizzle with 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and toss to coat. Place peppers on preheated grill and cook 2 minutes per side (5-6 minutes total), just until light grill marks are visible on peppers then remove from the grill.
How to Make the Vegetable Marinade:
Combine all marinade ingredients and stir until salt and sugar are dissolved. It seems like a lot of sugar, but it is the right amount. And you won’t be drinking the marinade (I hope).
How to Assemble and Marinate Sweet Peppers:
- You can use either a 1/2 gallon jar or any similar-sized lidded container. Place ½ of the chopped parsley along with ½ of chopped dill on the bottom of the jar.
- Tightly pack roasted peppers into the jar. Add marinade and remaining parsley and dill. Cover jar with lid and marinate overnight before serving.
If your sweet peppers are not fully submerged, place a small cup inside the jar to weigh them down.
Can Bell Peppers be Cooked on the Stovetop?
- YES! In the winter months, we sautee bell peppers on the stove.
- HOW TO: Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium/high heat. Place dried bell peppers on the skillet and saute them for 7-10 minutes until golden on the sides, tossing them around every couple minutes.
- Beware of oil splatter on stovetop, use oil splatter guard or a lid. Remove sauteed bell peppers from the skillet and let them cool.
