Grilled Bell Peppers

Grilled bell peppers are proof that sometimes the simplest recipes can be the most delicious. This easy-to-make side dish is perfect for summer, bringing out the natural sweetness of the peppers and adding a delightful charred flavor. Let’s fire up the grill and get started!

You’ll need:

  • 4 large sweet bell peppers: Red, orange, and yellow are best for their sweetness, while green peppers are less sweet.
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt & black pepper

To make:

  1. Heat your grill over medium-high heat for about 5-10 minutes until hot.
  2. Slice the bell peppers in half and remove the stems, seeds, and pith with a sharp knife.
  3. Using a basting or pastry brush, coat both sides of the pepper halves with olive oil.
  4. Place the bell peppers cut side down onto the preheated grill. Cook undisturbed with the lid closed for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Flip the peppers to the other side and grill with the lid closed for an additional 4-5 minutes until the peppers are cooked al dente with a nice char.
  6. Transfer the peppers from the grill to a foil-lined pan (optional) or plate. Season both sides with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Drizzle with a little aged balsamic or chimichurri for extra flavor. Enjoy!
