I always knew I had this deep love for bell peppers! I have these bright memories of my grandmother grilling them before she made her famous (at least famous within our household) Felfel.

Tips to how to make the perfect caramelized bell peppers

 

  • Make sure your pan is on medium low heat, this will ensure that the bell peppers cook slowly and release all of their amazing flavors. 

     

  • Slice the bell peppers into even slices to make sure that everything cooked evenly.
  • Do not crowd the pan. The bell peppers will steam down and cook eventually but they will take a very long time. USe a 12″ pan and give your veggies some room!
