Best Bell Pepper Recipes: Farmers Market Faves
The only way I can account for the greatness of sweet peppers is that they must have been sent to Earth from a superior planet. They’re healthy, beautiful, easy to grow, delicious raw or cooked, loved by many children (in their raw state, at least), easy to plunk into a dip … preferably a dip made out of more sweet peppers. Even my pet tortoise, Susie, loves sweet peppers. And Susie is a very picky eater.
In the summer, when peppers abound, it would be nuts to use the “jarred” version. But any recipe that stars sweet peppers is likely to be easy, because any recipe-writer with any sense knows that peppers are too good — and too pretty — to disguise. They’re the essence of summer, and summer doesn’t need dressing up.
