Roasted Mini Peppers and Caper Cream

This Roasted Mini Peppers Recipe is going to be your new go to. It’s such a great and easy recipe that makes the perfect appetizer or side. They are even better for snacking.

Why We Love These Roasted Mini Peppers and Caper Cream

These mini peppers are just adorable, aren’t they? Besides being tiny and adorable, the tiny peppers are easy to make. They can be found in your produce department in a bag ready to be taken home. All you have to do is rinse them, dry them, lay them out on the baking sheet, and you’re basically done.

It’s a sheet pan recipe. This means you can season them, pop them in the oven, and then they’re done. The mini peppers are cooked just until softened. You want them to have some char to add loads of flavor, but you don’t want to overcook them or they will fall apart.

Peppers Ready to Roast

Hot Tip: We often roast these peppers at the start of the week to have them around all week long. They are great for snacking or thrown into a salad or pasta for color and heft. 

Basically, these roasted mini peppers work great as an appetizer or side dish. You can serve the peppers warm just as is with a little olive oil and salt, but we recommend serving them with this very yummy Caper Cream for a refreshing contrast.
