Choosing the best Bell Peppers

For this recipe, the finished dish will look more attractive if you mix different coloured peppers. However, if you prefer one particular colour, then stick to what you like. As long as you have four peppers, colour doesn’t matter.

When buying your bell peppers, look for a rich deep colour. No matter which peppers (red, green, orange etc…) the colour should be deep and rich-looking.

Look for smooth shiny skin. Avoid peppers that have blemishes and soft spots. The skin should not be wrinkly or look dull. Good peppers should feel firm when you pick them up.

Peppers that feel heavy for their size, are a sign that they are not dehydrated. Compare with other peppers and choose the heavier ones.

It doesn’t matter whether the peppers have three or four bumps on the bottom. It matters when making stuffed peppers, as the four bumps make them stand well, but in this recipe, the peppers will be cut, so it is irrelevant.

How to make Low Carb Roasted Bell Peppers

Wash the peppers and slice off the top. Discard the stem and seeds.

On a cutting board, cut all of the peppers, including the tops, into bite-sized pieces. You can cut strips of your rather, it’s up to you.

Peel and slice the onions into wedges that are similar in size to the pepper pieces.

Place all cut pepper pieces and the onion wedges into a large Ziploc bag.

Add the Balsamic vinaigrette, olive oil, and garlic to the Ziploc bag.

Seal and then shake the bag and make sure the peppers are covered with the marinade. Marinade for 1 to 2 hours, turning every 1/2 hour to redistribute the marinade.

Line a sheet pan with foil and spray a generous amount of non-stick cooking spray on it. I use foil as it makes for an easy clean-up. (It is optional). If you choose not to use foil and your sheet pan is not a non-stick version, add some cooking spray (a generous amount) to keep the peppers from sticking to the pan.

Pour the peppers and onions onto the sheet pan. Spread them out so that they are even on the pan. Pour any leftover marinade over the pepper mixture.

Bake/Roast in the oven for 25 minutes, in a 400-degree F oven (200 degrees C). Remove from the oven, stir the peppers and sprinkle the crumbled feta over the peppers. Return them to the oven and continue roasting for another 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
