Roasted Sweet Mini Peppers

a couple years ago, I stumbled upon these adorable, tiny jewels of sweetness while shopping in the grocery store. I bought them just because I thought they were so darn cute, but I had no idea what I’d do with them.

as they sat on my kitchen counter, day after day, I still didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. The last day before they were about to expire, I thought.. ah ha! I’ll just throw them on a sheet tray and roast ‘em. WOW! To my surprise, little to no seeds with a very thin skin and crazy sweet. I picked one up by the stem and ate it. Just like that.

i call them the “The Crazy Simple Side Dish.” You can pair them with anything and everything. Serve with steak or fish. Top on burgers. Place in salads. But you gotta roast them first, that’s what makes them.. soo sweet!

    Thanks for the idea. I tried the mini sweets recently and immediately went out to buy them. I had seen them, but could not believe they were actually sweet. Also, I am not keen on bell pepper, but these are totally different. Had to buy a large bag, but shared with friends, while praising the sweet taste. You know, “Here just taste”! I love roasted veggies, so will definitely use this recipe. I am pinning now.
