Stuffed bell peppers

Posted on 1 min read

A key summer vegetable, peppers can be found on the shelves from June to September, and even in October depending on the year and the place of cultivation. In addition to its summer colours, the pepper is the vegetable with the highest vitamin C content.

Although eaten as a vegetable, the pepper is actually a fruit from a botanical point of view. Its colour changes as it ripens. It is green when picked before ripening. Left on the plant, it will turn yellow, then red.

In this recipe, we use the ripest pepper. This beautiful red colour ensures that we get our fill of antioxidants.
