Bell pepper-haters, raise your hands!!
Did you know that the bell pepper is a top source of vitamin C? It also contains vitamin A, B vitamins, lycopene, and β-carotene. Among the bell peppers, red bell peppers contain the most ascorbic acid and a higher level of free radical scavenging activity. Eating bell peppers, raw or lightly sautéed, a few times each week is great for your health. I prefer eating them cooked because when bell peppers are cooked, it intensifies natural sugar – it will bring whole new depth of flavor. If you are not a fan of bell peppers, try making this beef curry rice. The combination of onions and bell peppers goes really well with beef and curry sauce.
Without doubt, you will make it again.
