Shop The Sale: Multicolored Peppers

Multicolored PeppersYou know how experts always say, “eat the rainbow” to remind you to eat a variety of natural, whole foods, in colors created by God, as part of a well-balanced diet? Well nothing makes me happier to follow this advice than with multi-colored bell peppers.

Besides being beautiful, they’re super healthy, too, with loads of lycopene and antioxidants. They’re versatile; you can eat them raw or cooked.

One of my favorite things to do with peppers…well, there’s lots of favorite things! I like to julienne them and eat them raw as a snack. I love to slice them into thick rings and grill them with a spritz of extra virgin olive oil and a smattering of salt and pepper. But what I was originally going to say is that I love to stuff them and come up with new fillings to show off the beauty of my peppers. I have a tried-and-true turkey filling that I love, but I’ve recently been experimenting with a vegetarian version and have come up with a satisfying, healthy recipe filled with whole grain and a lot of flavor.

With bell peppers on sale this week at Brookshire’s, make sure you get one in every color to experiment with the different flavors.
