From Pizza to Stir Fry

Green Pepper

Proudly held as one of the best pizza toppings (non-debatable), green peppers feature a slight bitterness but always have that refreshing taste.

Characteristics

The green bell pepper has a crunchy almost bitter taste to it, but is very healthy and delicious. It has firm and thick walls, which translates well for stuffed pepper recipes or to add texture to a stir fry. Like other bell peppers, they have small seeds and a hollow interior.

Benefits

Packed with lutein that helps with eye health, vitamin C, and iron, all for under 20 calories.

Flavor

The green pepper holds the most bitter taste of all of the bell peppers, but it is perfect in recipes where a sweeter pepper would clash. Try it in a stir fry or a garlic chili chicken.
