Lunchbox peppers are mini, sweet-tasting little peppers that can be eaten in salads, stuffed, baked, or simply sautéed with some garlic and olive oil. They are delicious and perfect to serve as a side vegetable with some grilled meats or fish. They can be added to sandwiches or just eaten by themselves, as a snack.
These mini bell peppers are packaged in a mix of red, yellow and orange colors. One package will suffice as side dish. If you plan to serve them to company, make 2 packages, because after one taste, your family and friends will come back for seconds, and more!
To prepare; pop open a bag and sauté the peppers in a large skillet with some olive oil, garlic and salt. No need to embellish these peppers, they are simple fare, yet very flavorful. I like to slow cook them, turning them until they’re slightly charred on each side. They need time to cook; slowly sauté them. These peppers are so yummy that it’s worth the extra time it takes to cook them.
Summer is a slow and lazy time for my family. It’s a time when we don’t have to rush to make a meal. We enjoy cooking fresh vegetables especially when cooking these little lunchbox peppers which give off an amazing aroma, making the house smell so delicious; it’s what summer foodies like to do!
