Red Bell Peppers


Sweet red bell peppers are a rich source of vitamin C.  They also offer us a significant amount of vitamin A and adequate levels of essential minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, potassium, manganese, magnesium, and selenium.
Store red bell peppers in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.  They will stay fresh for 3-4 days.
To prepare, wash peppers under cold running water.  Cut around the stem end and discard it.  Remove the central core with its seeds.  Using a paring knife, chop into cubes, rings or strips.
Sweet red bell peppers are a wonderful addition to a green salad or cooked in stir-fries.  They are a popular item for shish kabobs, or simply grill them, cut in halves, along with other veggies.  Use as a topping on pizzas.  Finally, try stuffing your peppers with rice, meat, or cheddar cheese, finishing up by cooking or roasting them.
