roasted pepper relish

I had always been a bit apprehensive of roasting my own peppers so I continued to pay a ton for them at the store.

Then I had three peppers that needed to be used and I decided to just try roasting my own. Its easy to do right in the broiler! Heat the broiler on high, place peppers on a pan and essentially let them burn, turning to burn all sides. (Everyone can burn food, right?) Once you let the peppers cool you can easily the remove peel and seeds.

That’s it!

This relish can be used for just about anything. Try it with grilled steak or fish. Put it on pizza. Eat it with slices of bread and some melted cheese. Try it with eggs or just plain on its own.

Whatever you do with it, it’s sure to make any food look good and add delicious roasted pepper flavor to every bite.

Keywords: appetizer entree gluten-free low-carb vegan vegetarian


Ingredients (2-3 cups relish)

  • 3 peppers (I used yellow, orange and red)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped kalamata olives
  • 2 Tbsp chiffonade fresh parsley
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper


Preheat broiler to high.

Place peppers on a baking sheet on top rack, closest to the broiler.

Cook for about 15 minutes, rotating the peppers every few minutes when the skin gets dark.

Let peppers cool.

Remove seeds and skin. The skin should peel off pretty easily.

Thinly slice the peppers and blot with a paper towel.

Toss with olives and parsley, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper to taste.

Will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days.

    I am so scared to try this, our oven does not work very well and goes from normal temperature to super hot. I might just need to open the patio door and give it a try.

    Such a pretty dish! Peppers are really much easier to roast than it would seem – sometimes I even roast them on a burner on my gas range when I don’t feel like heating up the broiler and that works just as well!

    Um, loving your site. And this. I LOVE peppers–the only thing that keeps me from stocking up every week is the price! But if they’re on sale this week, I’m totally buying them and making this!

    PS. I read your about page and my boyfriend is also from a small town in Wisconsin…Appleton, anyone? So yay Wisconsin! I visited his family for the 4th of July and I <3 Door County.

    Love simple salads/relishes like this. What a great idea to put it on pizza. I never thought I’d say this about something in CA, but bell peppers are much more affordable here than they were back in KY. Even in the summer. Now that I can’t grow my own, I’m definitely happy about that! Can’t wait to make this.
