Spanish Roasted Peppers and Tomatoes

Posted on | October 17, 2012 | 5 Comments

This dish is very simple and healthy but don’t let this deceive you into thinking it’s going to be bland. This dish is far from bland, quite the contrary it bursts with flavours. I really like roasted peppers but this dish really brings out their sweet flavour.

It was brought to my attention that I am lacking Spanish recipes on this blog. It’s true. I am less familiar with the Spanish cuisine than others and even though I experiment a lot in the kitchen, I do tend to fall back back to more familiar cuisines. This recipe is a start to hopefully more recipes from cuisines that are out of my comfort zone. The World Recipes Cookbook will be a great companion in this adventure.

I am sure this dish is meant to be a side dish but served with fresh bread to soak up the delicious juices, it actually made a wonderful light main dish as well.

Spanish Roasted Peppers and Tomatoes


  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 5 medium-sized tomatoes, quartered or if larger tomatoes are used then cut them into wedges
  • 1/2 cup black olives
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3-4 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • dried rosemary
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F.

Add the bell peppers, onion rings, garlic, tomatoes, and olives to a large baking pan. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle brown sugar over it. Then pour the wine over it. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil or a lid. Bake for 40 minutes.

Take it out of the oven. Remove the foil or lid, be aware of the steam that will be released. Then stir everything well. Add the rosemary sprigs and generously sprinkle dried rosemary over it. Drizzle the olive oil over the veggies. Bake uncovered for another 30 minutes.

Serve hot with fresh bread.

Guten Appetit!!!

Spanische Geröstete Paprika und Tomaten


  • 2 rote Paprika, entkernt und in dünne Streifen geschnitten
  • 2 gelbe Paprika, entkernt und in dünne Streifen geschnitten
  • 1 rote Zwiebel, in Scheiben/Ringe geschnitten
  • 2 groβe Knoblauchzehen, in dünne Scheiben geschnitten
  • 5 mittelgroβe Tomaten, geviertelt oder falls gröβere Tomaten verwendet werden, dann in Spalten schneiden
  • 100 g schwarze Oliven
  • 2 EL brauner Zucker
  • 1/4 cup Weiβwein
  • Salz
  • frisch gemahlener schwarzer Pfeffer
  • 3-4 frische Rosmarinzweige
  • getrockneter Rosmarin
  • 2 EL Olivenöl


Den Backofen auf 200°C / 400°F vorheizen.

Die Paprika, Zwiebelringe, Knoblauch, Tomaten und die Oliven in ein groβe Auflaufform geben. Mit Salz und Pfeffer würzen und mit dem braunen Zucker bestreuen. Dann den Wein über das Gemüse gieβen. Die Auflaufform entweder mit einem Deckel oder Aluminiumfolie abdecken. Für 40 Minuten backen.

Die Auflaufform aus dem Ofen nehmen. Den Deckel oder die Folie entfernen. Dabei ist Vorsicht geboten, denn heiβer Dampf entweicht. Das Gemüse einmal gut mixen und dann mit getrocknetem Rosmarin bestreuen. Die Rosmarinzweige ebenfalls in die Auflaufform geben. Das Olivenöl über das Gemüse gieβen. Für weitere 30 Minuten backen, diesmal aber nicht abgedeckt.

 Heiβ und mit frischem Brot servieren.

Guten Appetit!!!

    @ My Italian Smörgåsbord: This explains why I made this recipe. I am more familiar with the Italian cuisine than the Spanish. So I guess this recipe wasn’t out of my comfort zone at all then. I have to try harder… :-P
    Thanks for your comment. And yes, it is absolutely delicious with fresh bread.

    @ Gourmandelle: Thank you!
