Bell peppers get their red, orange, and yellow color from carotenoids, which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits that can help lower our risk of cancer development and heart disease. Bell peppers are also loaded with vitamin C, which supports our immune system. Given that they also taste fantastic, why wouldn’t we want to make bell peppers a regular ingredient in our diet?
In the video below, I show you how to roast bell peppers in the oven. As you’ll see, it’s quite simple. Roasting bell peppers really brings out their almost candy-like sweetness. I love to make salad dressings with pureed roasted bell peppers or blend them up with my hummus, but they are also delicious in a sandwich, on top of salad greens, or as a side dish. What’s your favorite way to enjoy roasted bell peppers?
