“An apron is just a cape on backwards.”
No, this is not a blog about religion. But it is about beliefs. In some cooking styles there are sacred combinations of veggies and peppers that are believed to bring a dish to peak flavor. There’s the combination of onions, peppers, and celery for one. I have my own go to trinity.
oil or ghee
peppers, cut in strips
Put everything into a pan. Saute. Use immediately or store in a jar in the fridge. Full disclosure – I use bags of frozen pepper strips and sliced mushrooms. I am blissfully lazy.
The reason this is my favorite veggie trinity is because I love all the ingredients in this combination. Also, this combination is a no-brainer to serve on burgers, chicken, or sausages. You could also throw some of this into cooked rice, top with a slice of American cheese, and nuke it for a great side dish. This combination is also great in omelettes. Oh, the places you’ll go.
This is an example of being prepared for last minute company or a nutritious meal for yourself when you don’t feel like cooking.
