This bell pepper recipe is perfect for summer grilling!
If you end up with a ton of bell peppers from the garden this year (or even just find a good sale on them at the store!), you have to give this recipe a try. It’s easy summer grilling and the flavor makes a great side dish for just about any main course.
I’ve been doing a lot of barbecue recipes lately, and for good reason. No oven can compete with the flavor that a barbecue gives vegetables. It’s absolutely unparalleled in my world.
So I barbecue often in the summer months and even long into fall. That’s one of the many blessings of California weather. Many, many months for using the grill. And the more I use it, the better I get at using it. Funny how that works, but I’m not arguing. Plus, I can always count on Mini Chef eating his veggies when they’ve been cooked on the grill. So it’s a win-win.
These peppers are sweet and flavorful, so if you’re trying to get your own kids to eat more veggies, this may be a good one to try. But if you are cooking them specifically for children, then I would back off of the cumin just slightly. Use 2 tsp. instead of 1 tbsp. It’s a little milder for their little taste buds.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH WRINKLED PEPPERS?
If you have some peppers that are a little past their prime, the first thing to do is check them for mold. If there is no mold, but their skin is a little wrinkly, then they are still safe to eat.
- Moldy pepper = garbage.
- Wrinkly pepper – barbecue.
