sautéed bell peppers recipe

Bell peppers are in the nightshades family of vegetables. While they are a relatively common allergen, they are also a good source of essential vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium, and dietary fiber.

Bell peppers are high in alkaloids which can be toxic when raw. They must be eaten cooked, and the best way to cook bell peppers without loosing vital nutrients is an easy one -- simple sautéed bell peppers. This is a traditional recipe for an easy bell pepper dish.



Oil your skillet. Heat your skillet until hot.

Cut off the top of the bell pepper. Remove the fibrous insides and seeds. Cut into long strips.

When the skillet is ready, use long tongs to place the bell pepper strips into the skillet. Give them a good sear on all sides (2 to 3 minutes), enough for them to soften and cook slightly. Add salt to taste.

Serves: 4 to 6.

Tip: This will work with any size pepper you have. Small ones should be cooked somewhat less to avoid excess char.

Note: Hot peppers may turn sweet during the cooking process.
