Did you know… Bell pepper is not only an excellent source of carotenoids, but also a source of over 30 different members of the carotenoid nutrient family. A recent study from Spain took a close look at vitamin C, vitamin E, and six of these carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin) in all commonly eaten foods and found that only two vegetables contained at least two-thirds of all the listed nutrients. The winners were sweet bell pepper and tomato!

Note: You can also use this recipe just as a base and get creative with your ingredients. Try adding grated onion, zucchini, spinach, kale, chard, peppers, mushrooms, or sausage… Make it fun for the kids and let them decide!
