Roasted Colored Peppers

Ever try roasting colored peppers?  If not, they are yummy!  Sweet actually! 

 Blog-Roasted Peppers

Not to mention that this is easy, peasy to prepare.  Simply slice open, take out seeds and slice into a few strips, toss with oil (and spices if you want, but not necessary) and roast in a hot oven.  I guarantee that you won’t have any left over.  Roasting peppers somehow brings out a succulent, sweet flavor that people can’t resist.

Why eat them?  Well, besides being delish, they are good for you.  For starters, they are high in vitamin A, C B6, as well as high in lutein, lycopene and beta-carotene.   Every color pepper brings a slightly different phytochemical, which have anti-oxidant properties.  Ever hear about eating the rainbow (all colors)? This is why.  These are the things that we keep hearing about that are supposed to keep cells from getting damaged. (Source).
