Wash the peppers and pat dry with a lint-free towel. Optional step: use a skewer to poke a small hole in each pepper (this isn't necessary but may prevent the peppers from splitting open during cooking).

Place peppers in a large bowl, and use your hands to toss with oil. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt.
1 teaspoon avocado oil or other high-heat cooking oil, sea salt, to taste
Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees. Arrange peppers in a single layer in air fryer, working in batches if needed. Cook for about 7 minutes, shaking/tossing the peppers at the halfway point. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients, if using.
1 tablespoon tamari, 2 teaspoons rice vinegar, 2 teaspoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger, 1 large clove garlic, grated or finely minced, 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
When done the peppers will be tender and browned in some areas. Serve warm.
