Marinated Red Peppers

Marinated Red Peppers

As a kid, I used to watch my grandma make this recipe. These marinated red peppers are super easy to make and they are GFVG (of course). They call for four ingredients (red peppers, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and salt).

This recipe is all about the method. The ingredients are basic but the magic happens when you are putting everything together. I was astonished to replicate this dish step by step from my childhood without the aid of my grandma’s instructions.

This recipe keeps in the fridge forever – in fact, the longer it marinates in its’ wonderful juices, the better! I often make a huge batch, store them in glass jars in the fridge. These marinated red peppers will spice up any dish – they are perfect with rice based dish or alongside roasted potatoes.

A quick and flavourful side to any dish.


  • 2 red peppers

  • 3 tbsps olive oil

  • 4 tbsps apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp of salt


  • Set your oven to the grill function at 230C/446F. Place both peppers in the oven and grill for about 20 mins. Turn the over to ensure that all sides have a slightly burnt look (about 5 mins per side)Marinated Red Peppers
  • Once all sides have been grilled, take them out of the oven and let them cool down.
  • After they have cooled off (15mins) start to peel the skin off the peppers using your fingers. Then cut the pepper in half with a knife and clean the inside with a spoon. Place all the clean halves in a bowl.Marinated Red Peppers
  • Now thoroughly coat the peppers with the apple cider vinegar, olive oil and salt. Place in the fridge and let them marinate for about 10 mins. The longer they soak in all that amazing marinade, the more flavourful they are.
  • Enjoy!


  • If you want to make a double batch to store in the fridge, I recommend: glass jars, place the red peppers in and fill with the leftover marinade liquid.

Have you tried my chilli fries recipe ? (click the highlighted link) This side would be ideal next to my chilli fries. If you are in the mood for something a tad lighter than these will be perfect next to any yummy garden salad.

Optimist: Someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s more like a cha-cha.
