Air Fryer Roasted Peppers. Delicious oil free roasted bell peppers cooked to perfection in the air fryer. Easy to prepare, low in calories and once you cook them like this you will not go back to the frying pan.
Air Fryer Roasted Peppers you say? The easiest way I have ever made roasted peppers and they taste so good. You place them in the air fryer after you have diced them, without oil, then a few minutes later they are cooked. You can then choose whether you want them with a charred look, lightly cooked or just warmed up.
I prefer mine just before charred and love to have them when I am on Paleo as an alternative to chips.
For me though I don’t get to eat roasted peppers as often as I would like. They fall into one of those vegetables that not many of us in the Milner household like, so they don’t get purchased from the supermarket very often.
Dominic hates peppers, Kyle hates peppers so if I am going to have my own peppers it will be to share with my under 4s which never seems worth buying them for.
On the other hand, I have a nut allergy and so does Kyle so you will never find nuts in our house, much to Dominic’s disgust.
As well as this I hate mushrooms, so these are not very frequent on the blog either.
Kyle hates Brussel sprouts but as the rest of us all love them, we get them as often as we can and he just has something else.
But overall, we are a family that loves our vegetables and easily have our five a day each day, we just try to buy what keeps everyone happy.
The plus side of running a food blog though, is an excuse to get some roasted peppers and cook them in the air fryer.
Air Fryer Roasted Peppers
We all have different uses for our roasted peppers. But I am sure we are all agreed that we want them oil free and colourful.
- Warm But Not Soft = If you want your roasted peppers lovely and warm but without them being fully cooked then go with 8 minutes.
- Crispy = To get them crispy but not quite chargrilled then opt for 10 minutes.
- Chargrilled = For that amazing chargrilled flavour like it has been on a barbecue opt with 12 minutes.
If you are slow cooking some chicken and want to use the peppers to make it into chicken fajitas or similar, then opt with crispy. If you want to add the peppers to a warm salad go with warm but not soft. Or if you want a delicious side to your barbecue then go with chargrilled.
I love all 3 ways to air fry peppers and I get most excited the fact that something that tastes so good, can be so low in calories.#AirFryer #Roasted #Peppers (Bell Peppers) @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
- Slice the tops off the peppers and using a firm grip pull out the stalk to remove all the seeds in one go.
- Dice the peppers into medium to large chunks.
- Place them in the air fryer and cook for 8 minutes at 180c/360f.
- Serve while still warm.
I cooked my air fryer roasted peppers for 8 minutes for a warm not raw crunch. If you want them crispy cook for 10 minutes and if you want them chargrilled cook for 12 minutes. They don’t need any oil and you can season them after cooking depending on how you plan to use them. If you have no special plans for them and they are just a side, then a sprinkling of salt and pepper is delicious.
