How to grill peppers directly on the grates
  1. Cut the bell peppers into quarters. Then mix with olive oil and salt.
  2. Place them directly onto the grates. You’ll want to space them apart as much as possible because they’ll cook faster this way.
  3. Grill about 6 to 10 minutes, until tender.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, plus extra for serving
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Place bell peppers into a medium bowl and add the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Grill peppers for 4-5 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear and desired doneness is reached.
  2. Meanwhile, make the marinade. In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic, olive oil, dijon, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Once peppers are finished grilling, immediately toss them in the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes or so at room temperature to absorb all of the flavors. Sprinkle with extra fresh thyme and serve!
