4 small red peppers (bell peppers or piquillo peppers)


  1. Wash the peppers and cut the two extremities.
  2. Use a knife to open the pepper on one side and open the pepper completely with your hands exposing the seeds.
  3. Get rid of the seeds.
  4. Place the peppers on a non-stick baking tray or use parchment paper.
  5. Place the tray in the middle part of your oven at 180ºC (356º F) and set your timer to 13 minutes.
  6. When the timer goes off, flip the peppers and place them back in the oven for another 13 minutes.
  7. You’ll know the peppers are ready if you can easily pinch them with a fork.
  8. Once they are cool to the touch, cut them into cubes and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.


You can store cooked peppers in the fridge for up to a week. Make sure to use clean cutlery when serving some of the peppers and close the container properly after every use.

Adding oil or salt will decrease the storage time.
