Red bell peppers in an air fryer

Roasted Red Bell Peppers [Air Fryer]


Roasting red bell peppers softens and sweetens their flavor. They’re brilliant on salads, sandwiches, or blended into sauces.




  1. Wash peppers thoroughly and pat dry.
  2. Brush with olive oil (or use fingers in place of a brush).
  3. Place peppers on fryer tray.
  4. Cook at 400° for 25 minutes. 
  5. Pull peppers from the tray and seal in a ziplock bag.* Allow them to cool. 
  6. Once cool enough to touch (15-20 minutes), gently peel.
  7. Discard skin and seeds.
  8. Consume immediately, or drizzle with olive oil and store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.


*The smoke point of olive oil is 410°. However, if you’re concerned you can use avocado oil instead.

*The ziplock bag is not necessary, but it will make the peeling experience much less annoying.
