How to Roast Red Peppers in Air Fryer

Roasting peppers in an air fryer is quick and easy! Here’s a simple method:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  • Wash the peppers and pat them dry. Then, slice off the tops and remove the seeds and membranes. Cut the peppers into quarters or smaller strips for more even roasting.
  • You can lightly coat the peppers with olive or avocado oil and season with salt, pepper, or other desired seasonings. You can omit the oil if you prefer. 
  • Place the peppers in a single layer in the air fryer basket; be sure not to overcrowd them.
  • Roast the peppers in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes or until they are charred and blistered with black spots, flipping halfway through for even cooking.
  • Once roasted to your liking, remove the peppers from the air fryer and let them cool slightly before serving or using them in your favorite recipes. If you prefer, you can remove the skin of the pepper. Check out the method below.

FAQ’s

What type of pepper should I use?

You can use any of your favorite pepper varieties. Red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, orange bell peppers, green peppers, mini peppers, or poblano peppers. Any of them would make a good vegetable side dish; however, sweet red peppers have the most vitamin C. 

How to remove the skin from peppers?

After air frying the peppers, you can easily remove the skin using the following method:

  1. Allow the roasted peppers to cool slightly until they are comfortable to handle or use tongs. 
  2. Once cooled, place the peppers in a large bowl and cover them with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Let them steam for about 10-15 minutes. This steaming process will help loosen the skin, making it easier to peel off.
  3. After steaming, carefully peel away the skin from the peppers using your fingers or a small knife. The skin should come off easily, revealing the tender flesh underneath.
  4. If you encounter any stubborn bits of skin, you can use a paper towel to rub them off gently.
  5. Once the skin has been removed, you can proceed to slice, chop, or use the roasted peppers as desired in your favorite ways.

How long do homemade roast peppers last in the fridge?

When stored properly, homemade roasted peppers can last in the refrigerator for about 3-5 days. To maximize their shelf life:

  1. Allow the roasted peppers to cool completely before storing them.
  2. Place them in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag.
  3. Make sure the peppers are fully submerged in their own juices or olive oil to help preserve their freshness.
  4. Store the container in the refrigerator at or below 40°F (4°C).

Properly stored, homemade roast peppers can maintain their quality and flavor for up to 5 days, although they are best enjoyed within the first few days for optimal taste and texture. If you won’t be able to use them within this timeframe, you can also freeze them for longer-term storage.

Can you freeze roasted peppers?

Yes! It’s a great way to always have roasted peppers on hand.

  1. Place the prepared peppers in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This will prevent them from sticking together during freezing.
  2. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and let the peppers freeze until firm, usually for about 1-2 hours.
  3. Once frozen, transfer the peppers to airtight freezer bags or containers, removing as much air as possible before sealing.
  4. Label the bags or containers with the date and contents, then store them in the freezer.

Properly frozen roasted peppers can last 6-12 months. When ready to use, thaw the desired amount in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for a few hours before incorporating them into your recipes.

Do you have to peel the skin off roasted peppers?

While it’s common to peel the skin off roasted peppers, especially if you want a smoother texture or use them in certain recipes, it’s not always necessary. The decision to peel the skin off largely depends on personal preference and the specific dish you’re preparing.

Some people enjoy the flavor and texture of the roasted pepper skin and choose to leave it on, while others prefer to remove it for a smoother consistency. If you’re using roasted peppers in a dish where the skin won’t be noticeable or affect the texture, such as blending them into a sauce or soup, you may opt to skip the peeling step altogether.

Ultimately, whether or not you peel the skin off roasted peppers is up to you and your culinary preferences. Feel free to experiment and see what works best for your dishes and taste preferences.

What to do with roasted peppers?

Here are some ways to use this versatile ingredient: 

  1. Open-Stuffed Peppers: Top roasted peppers with a mixture of cooked grains (such as quinoa or rice), beans (such as black beans or chickpeas), vegetables, herbs, and spices for a hearty and nutritious meal.
  2. Roasted Pepper Hummus: Blend roasted peppers into homemade hummus for a flavorful twist on this classic dip. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita bread, or crackers for a tasty snack or appetizer.
  3. Roasted Pepper Soup: Puree roasted peppers with vegetable broth, onions, garlic, and spices for a great option for a soup that is creamy and comforting. Garnish with fresh herbs or a drizzle of coconut cream for added flavor.
  4. Roasted Pepper Pasta: Toss roasted peppers with cooked pasta, olive oil, roasted garlic cloves, cherry tomatoes, spinach, and vegan Parmesan cheese for a simple yet satisfying pasta dish.
  5. Roasted Pepper Tacos: Use roasted peppers as a filling for vegan tacos, along with black beans, avocado, lettuce, salsa, and dairy-free sour cream or yogurt, or create burrito bowls.
  6. Roasted Pepper Sandwich: Layer roasted peppers on whole-grain bread with hummus, avocado, spinach, and sprouts for a delicious and nutritious vegan sandwich.
  7. Roasted Pepper Pizza: Top a homemade pizza crust with roasted peppers, sliced tomatoes, olives, red onions, and dairy-free cheese for a tasty vegan pizza option.

These are just a few ideas to get you started, but the possibilities are endless when it comes to using roasted peppers. Experiment with different ingredients and flavor combinations to create your own delicious easy recipes!
