Lunchbox Peppers Sauteed in Garlic and Olive Oil are mini, sweet-tasting little bell peppers that are slowly sauteed in a skillet with fresh garlic and olive oil, until slightly charred.  Delicious tasting and perfect to serve as a side vegetable with some grilled meats or fish.  Add them to sandwiches, or eat them alone as a snack.

Lunchbox Peppers are packaged in a bag with an assortment of them in red, yellow, and orange colors.  They are usually tossed in salads or added to lunchboxes as a snack. 

However, I prefer to slowly saute them on the stovetop.

One package will suffice as a side dish for 4 servings. 

If you plan to serve them with for company, make 2 packages, because, after one taste, your family and friends will come back for seconds, and more!

 

How To Prepare Lunchbox Peppers Sauteed in Garlic and Olive Oil…

  • First, open a bag and toss the peppers in a large skillet with some olive oil, garlic, and salt.  And slowly cook them.  That’s it!

  • No need to embellish these peppers, they are simple, yet very flavorful.  I like to cook them low and slow, turning them until they’re slightly charred on each side. 

  • Sauteing these Lunchbox Peppers slowly is the key!

These lunchbox peppers are so yummy that it’s worth the extra time it takes to cook them.

Summertime is about slowing down, enjoying the lazy days, and spending quality time with family and friends.  It’s a time when we don’t have to rush to make a meal either.

Sauteing these mini bell peppers is wonderful and will need a little time and patience. But worth it!

Our Grilled Ginger-Lime Chicken Kabobs would be perfect to serve with these lunchbox peppers. 

We enjoy sauteing fresh vegetables all summer long, and especially these lunchbox peppers which give off an amazing aroma, making the house smell so delicious!

And, we foodies love to do that!
