The bell pepper

Do you like bell peppers? You’re right, because these colorful and flavorful vegetables are also true allies for your health. Discover in this article how bell pepper can benefit you, how to use it in cooking, and where to enjoy it in an exceptional setting. Bell pepper, a powerhouse of vitamins and antioxidants  Bell pepper is a champion in vitamin C content. Just behind parsley, it surpasses cabbage and spinach, which are also well-endowed. 100g of bell pepper provides an average of 126mg of vitamin C, so a small portion of only 50g can cover 75% of the recommended daily intake. The vitamin C content increases as the bell pepper ripens and is almost twice as high in red peppers compared to green ones that have not reached their full maturity. Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, meaning it protects the body’s cells against damage caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that can promote premature aging and certain chronic diseases. Vitamin C also strengthens the immune system, promotes wound healing, and facilitates the absorption of plant-based iron. But bell pepper doesn’t just offer you vitamin C. It also contains other antioxidants such as carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin) and flavonoids (quercetin, kaempferol). These substances help prevent cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and age-related vision disorders. Bell pepper is also a good source of dietary fiber, especially soluble fiber. Dietary fiber is important for digestion and digestive health as it can help maintain intestinal regularity, promote satiety, and regulate blood sugar levels. Finally, bell pepper provides essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and copper, as well as B-group vitamins, including vitamin B6 and folic acid. Bell pepper, a versatile and delicious ingredient Bell pepper comes in several colors (green, red, yellow, orange, purple…) and varieties (sweet, hot, horn-shaped…). It can be consumed raw or cooked, according to your preferences and recipes. Raw, it adds crunchiness and freshness to your salads, sandwiches, or dips. You can cut it into strips, cubes, or slices and season it with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. You can also blend it with cream cheese, yogurt, or tahini to make a creamy spread or dip. Cooked, it reveals its full flavor and sweetness. You can roast it in the oven or sauté it in a pan with a little olive oil and herbs. You can also stuff it with minced meat, rice, or quinoa and bake it in the oven with cheese. You can also add it to soups, ratatouilles, or curries to add color and flavor. Bell pepper pairs well with other vegetables (tomatoes, eggplants, zucchini…), as well as with fruits (mango, pineapple…), cheeses (feta, mozzarella…), and spices (paprika). However, there is no specific reference in the provided search results indicating this precise combination. Nevertheless, the idea of combining sweet fruits with bell pepper can create an interesting flavor contrast. Regarding cheese pairings, bell pepper can be accompanied by cheeses such as feta and mozzarella, depending on your preference. Unfortunately, the search results do not provide specific information about these associations. In conclusion, bell pepper can be successfully combined with various vegetables such as tomatoes, eggplants, and zucchini. Although there are no specific references for associations with fruits and cheeses, bell pepper can be combined with fruits such as mango and pineapple, as well as with cheeses like feta and mozzarella, to create interesting flavor combinations.
