Colorful Marinated Bell Peppers

Colorful Marinated Bell Peppers

These peppers become just like fruit Since they aren't sour, you can really taste the natural sweetness. The celery also gives off a nice aroma.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Red pepper
1 large
Yellow bell pepper
1 large
Celery leaves (or parsley)
as desired
Garlic (sliced)
1/4 clove (1-2 slices)
Marinade:
Vinegar
1 tablespoon
Lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
1 teaspoon
Sugar
2 teaspoons
Salt
to taste
Water
2 tablespoons
Grapeseed Oil (or olive oil)
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Wash the peppers and cut in half. Place on a baking tray and put into the oven (at a high temperature) or a toaster oven and cook until soft.
2. You can also cook the peppers under a grill! They'll probably become more charred but that's fine. Remove the seeds and skin carefully.
3. They will look very nice once the charred skin is peeled off, so be sure to char them well. If they are only lightly charred, the skin won't come off easily.
4. Combine the marinade ingredients and mix well.
5. After cutting the peppers into bite-sized pieces, place into a Tupperware or plastic container.
6. Top with the sliced garlic and chopped celery leaves. Pour in the marinade and let it sit awhile to marinate. Done!
7. You can also make this even easier by using the microwave. See Recipe ID: 2624026.

Story Behind this Recipe

I use this as a side dish very often since the colors are so lovely. It will keep in the refrigerator for several days so you can also make it in advance. The celery leaves or parsley create a nice colorful and flavorful accent, so don't leave it out.
