30 Capsicum Recipes, or, Bell Pepper Recipes

Here’s a roundup of 30 capsicum recipes, or, bell pepper recipes, from some great foodies across the web. Capsicum has a sweet earthy taste and unlike its pepper relatives, has no heat. Though it possesses no capsaicin—a compound lauded for its weight management properties—it does possess capsiate; a compound with near-identical health benefits.

Bell peppers work well in recipes raw or cooked, as they can be grilled alongside faux meats, sautéed with other vegetables, or simmered in rich, savory curries.
