Roasted Bell Peppers and Zucchini

Sharing is caring!

With the end of the summer season coming soon, I am trying to squeeze out the best of summer in these last few weeks. This is a great time to buy vegetables like zucchini and bell peppers, because there is an abundance of these in the markets right now at great prices. I would suggest making double, and then making this easy roasted vegetable soup

So the other day I made this as a healthy dinner option. It makes a great side dish too, but I sometimes make it for dinner because it tastes great and I can feel good about it as a meatless dinner option. 



I just love how good my kitchen smells when they are roasting and I can just let them cook for a while. You can change up the vegetables too. 



They are so simple to make and  you can prepare some of the vegetables ahead of time. I used baby potatoes, but you can use russet or red potatoes too.

They are such a colorful and savory dish with the sweetness of the bell peppers. Really good any time of year.


It’s also a great way to use fresh produce from the farmers market. I like to look at what is in season, as the dish becomes more economical if you can use produce that is at the height of its season.

Looks delicious. I love roast vegetables. I do tend to add too much salt to my potatoes but I love it that way!

I like a bit of salt on a lot of things too Maria. Roasted vegetables make a wonderful side dish or main dish to any meal.

Love this idea! I'm a huge zucchini fan and I cook with bell peppers more than most of my family enjoys but I just don't care because I love them so much. I"ll have to try this next week when I make enchiladas. I think that last thing I made with zucchini was a taco zucchini boat recipe I adapted from Persnickity Plates on my food blog - so good too!

Yay for zucchini fans! Those zucchini boats sound really good! Will have to try them! Thanks for stopping by.

I love the stacks. We have bell peppers growing in our garden right now although no zucchini this year. That makes me sad! I love it. I think we get it through our CSA, though.

How wonderful that you grow your own bell peppers Tamara! You are so lucky to have a garden!
