Back to Basics: Peppers and Onions

Summer is around the corner! Peppers and onions are perfect for picnics!

The purpose of the Back to Basics videos is to show you how to cook healthy food in a simple way.  You can’t make sausage with peppers and onions, unless you know how to make just the peppers and onions first! Well maybe you can, but you get the gist 😉

For every 4-5 people, use 2 medium sized yellow onions and 3 peppers. Cut your onions in quarters and then cut into thin slices, lengthwise. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large saucepan or a wok. Add the onions and let them cook for a few minutes while you prepare the peppers.

Wash and dry the peppers. Cut in half to take the stem out and all of the seeds on the inside. Cut into thin slices, about 1/2″ thick.

By now, the onions should be a little brown. Add in your peppers. Add 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper. Mix together. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, occasionally stirring.


And that’s it! Super simple, right?!
