There was a bag of five, red and green peppers on my shopping list last week. You will have noticed it if you read the list on my food diary. They were reduced from £2 to 20p. I don't do many stir fries so I needed a way to use the peppers up before they became wrinkly. Whenever I steam them with other veg, the skins always seem tough, and I hate tough skins on anything. Tomato skins seem to be tough these days and I don't enjoy them as much as I used to. I usually chew for a few minutes and spit them out. Yuk, horrible.
Anyway I came up with this idea to use up the peppers, because I do not throw food out, no matter how cheap it is. First chop them up into a pan. Add water, not too much. Then I added turmeric, garlic granules, black pepper, some other spices, and boiled them for ten minutes.
Result, a lovely tasty meal for a few pence. And more zapped peppers in the freezer to be used for soups and stews.
