If you find yourself visiting a Mediterranean country, one of the first things you may notice is an overflowing abundance of vegetables. Pickled vegetables, grilled vegetables, and vegetables with other vegetables. What seems out of the ordinary to us becomes exotic. So why can’t we flip the tables and make an overflowing abundance of vegetables our everyday normal?
One way to do this is to coax out incredible flavors of vegetables using simple methods. Such as, in-season tomatoes with a hint of sea salt or out-of-season tomatoes lightly roasted. And sweet bell peppers? One word: grill.
Grilled bell peppers brings out the sweetness without ruining that refreshing burst of flavor you get with a raw pepper. Rub it with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and finish up with a light drizzle of balsamic and you will be hooked! Serve this with breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks on the go.
