Wednesday, June 23, 2010
They are high in Vitamins C and A as well as folate. Red bell peppers have the highest level of antioxidants than most other vegetables. Eating peppers on a regular basis can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and asthma. You can’t get that in a pill!
Choose peppers with a smooth, firm flesh. Pick peppers with rich colors and no soft spots. Wash thoroghly, remove the cap and scoop out the seeds. If roasting, leave them whole.
Enjoy peppers raw on a vegetable tray, steamed, roasted or sauteed to partner with other ingredients.
