Capsicum (Green) are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. This versatile vegetable can be stuffed, roasted, used in stir-fries or simply eaten raw. They are also a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin E, B6 and folate. Store capsicums in the crisper section of your fridge.
Use in salads, salsas, casseroles, pasta and rice dishes. To remove skin, grill until charred, then sweat under plastic for 2 minutes – skin slides off.
