Preheat oven to 450F.  Toss the peppers, onions, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix to coat.  Pour onto a jellyroll pan and roast for about 30 minutes, turning vegetables about halfway through.  Cook until caramelized and fragrant.  Alternatively, grill on a grill pan.

Add the roasted vegetables to the bowl with the wild rice and cannellini beans.
