Perfect Grill-Friend: Baby Bell Peppers

Mini Sweet Peppers are made for the grill! Their bright colors and cute little size are irresistible! But don’t worry, although they look a lot like spicy hot chile peppers, Mini Sweets are mild and sweet like bell peppers, and just as versatile.

These baby bell peppers come in mixed containers of red, orange and vibrant yellow, and are so crisp and sweet and delicious. 

Toss these babies in some olive oil, salt and pepper, and throw them straight onto your grill until just blistered to get that lovely roasted pepper flavor. Here’s a tasty recipe from the Food Network Magazine.

(Our friend, Chef Gregg Denter, recently combined Frieda’s Soyrizo with cream cheese to fill these little pepper “boats.” He topped them with roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds))
* Roast them on the grill, then slice and add to salads and burgers
* Thread on skewers for colorful veggie kebabs
* Serve on veggie platters with hummus and other healthy dips
* Stuff with ground meat and rice mixtures, then bake for bit-size appetizers
