Not only are these peppers beautiful, but they're sweet and delicious too! They are vivid both in color and in flavor.
A quick saute, a splash of good wine, a sprinkle of lovely French herbs, and you've got a gorgeous side dish to complement almost any meal. They'd even be great served on their own, as a vegan/vegetarian dish over rice or pasta.
Take a virtual trip to the south of France with this fabulous, easy recipe!
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow pepper, sliced thin
1 medium orange pepper, sliced thin
pinch of kosher salt
1/2 cup dry white wine
3/4 teaspoon herbes de Provence (available at specialty markets; try to get one that's a bit heavier on the lavender)
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers and salt; cook for 2-3 minutes, just to caramelize them a bit. Turn heat to medium-low, add wine, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers are tender. Turn heat back up to medium-high and cook peppers, stirring frequently, just until the rest of the liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with the herbes de Provence.
Serves 4-6 as a side dish.
