How to grill bell peppers

We are going to show you how to make the best grilled peppers. I was hesitant to share this recipe because I don’t know if you could call this really a recipe, but I just have to share it with you.

See… I love almost all food on the grill. Ok, that may be bit of an exaggeration, but I do love to grill.

For some reason almost everything tastes better on the grill. We have grilled zucchini, grilled potatoes and carrots,  and grilled corn – all of which were a success.

Ingredients:

  • bell peppers
  • olive oil

How to grill peppers:

First, wash the bell peppers and remove the stems and all of the seeds.

How do you cut peppers for grilling?

I like to cut the peppers into quarters. This is the perfect size for grilling.

Next, rub olive oil on the bell peppers. I used a basting brush to make this easier. It really helps spread the olive oil out so you can use less.

You can also toss to coat the olive oil.

Finally, put the peppers skin side up directly on your preheated grill grates. Let them cook for several minutes per side.
