What To Do With Green Bell Peppers?

green pepper recipes frozen green peppers

A while ago green bell peppers where the only veggies that were wasting in our kitchen…  When I was buying a bag of mixed bell peppers, green peppers were useless: if cooked with food for too long they were turning bitter, raw also not so nice to eat, unless I was making, omelette,  fajitas or other dish requiring short cooking / stir-frying.
So I started chopping and freezing green peppers (image above) and whenever I wanted to make an omelette or scrambled eggs (perfect on the top of crunchy bread with some cheese) I had them ready and the most important – they were not getting spoiled in the fridge any more (!)

Below few other ideas on how I use green bell peppers… And what are you doing with your green peppers?

Your thoughts…

  1. what a good idea. I also put it in spicy lentil soup.

  2. What a great idea Margot. I’m still sold on your gorgeous Coconut, Pepper and Coriander Sauce mmmmmm… :D

  3. Rosie – I made this sauce twice only this week :) I still have some in my fridge to use for sandwiches… I’m glad you like it too (!)

    Maybelles Mom – what a good idea, I often make lentil soup, must try with green peppers.

  4. I love green bell peppers because we get a ton of them here. I use them a lot in stir fries, wraps, sandwiches & on pizzas toppings. Great idea to freeze them. I hate it when something spoils…

  5. I saute them with onions to eat with sausages…. but, yes, freezing is a great idea.

  6. We love green bell peppers! I like to freeze them too. I use them in stews, stir frys, red beans and rice, jambalaya, chili, eggs, salads… wow, we just add them to everything. They rarely last but when I think they are going to spoil I just dice and pop in the freezer.

  7. Too bad green peppers are the cheapest out of all of them, b/c the red ones are definitely better.

    The way I typically use green peppers is to stuff them with ground beef, rice, etc.

  8. You don’t like them raw? I grew up snacking on them raw, so I enjoy them that way.

  9. Thank you, now I have few more ideas on how to use green peppers.
    Camille – I know that it can sound strange, but no, I don’t like them raw… I mean I would eat them without problem, but if I can choose, I will always go for red or yellow peppers, but red ones are my favourite, especially roasted:
