5 Minute Herbed Bell Peppers

Herbed Bell Peppers, and how it all started at home

Bell Peppers a.k.a capsicum is a much loved veggie at home, esp for the little one and me. It wasn’t that way a few years ago when the husband and the kids used to turn up their nose at the vegetable. But when we started making GF pasta twice a month for Sunday Brunch, these herbed bell peppers made their way to the dining table and are much relished.

Today’s dish is a 5-min quick sautè that we love to have as a salad, a meal (with some protein like broccoli or chickpeas thrown in) or as a side with Pasta in Homemade Arrabiata sauce. Add some Broccoli, Feta to this and you would love this Broccoli-Bell Pepper Salad with Orange Vinaigerette

Various recipes you can try with Bell Pepper

Bell Peppers are very delicate, and like mushrooms cook very quickly. The bestway to get maximum flavour out of them is to roast them or saute them lightly.
