WTF Do I Do With
Live Oak Farms Red Bell Peppers ?!

‐ Marinated Bells ‐

4 Live Oak Farms Red Bell Peppers

¼ cup olive oil 

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar 

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp salt

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

2 tsp fresh herbs; oregano, thyme, and parsley

French baguette and spreadable cheese of choice (optional)


Prep Time: 35 min

Chill Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 1 hour

Servings: 4


1 To char your red bells, turn your oven to broil. Place the peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet about 8" from the broiling element. Roast peppers for about 20–25 minutes, giving a quarter turn every 5 minutes. Do this until peppers are completely charred. 

2 Remove them from the oven. Place peppers in a bowl and seal bowl with plastic wrap to steam peppers and loosen the skins. Let steam for 10–15 minutes.

3 While the peppers are steaming, create the marinade. Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic, and fresh herbs into a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Once peppers have steamed and are cool to touch, remove skins. Should be able to use fingers, but you can use a spoon to scrape the charred skin as well. Scrape away from stem. Remove stem and seeds. Slice peppers to whatever size you like. 

Add sliced peppers to the marinade and place in a sealed container. Refrigerate for 1 hour (minimum) to overnight. 

Pair with a French baguette cut into ½" pieces and a spreadable cheese of your choice (goat cheese pictured). Delicious appetizer for the coming holidays! Enjoy!
