How To Make Roasted Red Peppers

July 28, 2014 2 min read

In my hunt for a good hummus recipe, I noticed that a common ingredient was roasted red peppers, which is a topping I love on pizza, pasta, or in a Panini. You can buy jars of roasted red peppers, but I’m a fan of homemade anything; it will generally be tastier and healthier than anything you buy in a store. So I thought – roasted red peppers, that should be easy, just pop them in the oven with some seasoning, like roasted potatoes right? All I can say is thank god for Pinterest, Google, and food blogs. Here are 3 ways to get delicious roasted red peppers: Ingredients/Tools:
  • Red peppers
  • Olive oil
  • Tin Foil
  • Tongs
Roasting: Oven Directions:
  1. Line a tray with tin foil and lay peppers on their side.
  2. Bake at 400F for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through. Move onto steaming.

  1. Wrap your pepper in a double layer of tin foil, sealing tightly.
  2. With your gas stovetop flame at medium, roast for 20-25 minutes, turning with a pair of tongs every 5 minutes.
  3. Squeeze the pepper lightly, if it feels soft it’s ready, if it’s firm, continue to cook for a few more minutes.
  4. Let it cool 20 minutes, then carefully unwrap the foil. Move onto steaming.

  1. Place peppers on an open grill over medium flame, cook for 15-20 minutes, turning with tongs every few minutes until charred and soft. Move onto steaming.
  1. Steam the peppers, placing them on a flat surface, such as a cutting board, and placing an inverted bowl or microwave cover on top. Steam for 15 minutes. This will allow you to peel the skin off more easily.

  1. Slice the pepper from top to bottom vertically. Then pull the stem out from the top of the pepper. Use a paper towel to wipe away any remaining loose seeds.
  2. Flip it over to the skin side and peel off the skin, leaving some of the skin on if you want a more charred flavour.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
