How to Cook Sliced Bell Peppers in the Oven

Bell peppers make a flavorful side dish or snack, and roasting them in the oven helps draw out the rich flavors of these colorful vegetables. Peppers are low in calories, and provide a good source of vitamins A and C, according to the University of Illinois Extension. These vitamins are powerful antioxidants that help rid the body of free radicals, contributing to better overall health and a lower risk of many diseases.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

Slice bell peppers in quarters length-wise, removing the inner membranes and seeds. Continue to slice into smaller long pieces.

Step 3

Arrange the sliced peppers on a shallow baking pan. Add as many pepper slices as you wish; there's no need to keep them from touching -- just avoid stacking them on top of each other.

Step 4

Drizzle olive oil over the sliced peppers and add salt, pepper and herbs to taste.

Step 5

Place the baking sheet on the middle rack of the preheated oven and cook them for about 20 minutes, turning the slices with a spatula at least once about halfway through.
