Provencal Peppers

When I saw this recipe over at Food Floozie, I knew I had to try it. I tweaked it just a little to suit our family's tastes. It is tangy and flavorful and goes well as a side dish with just about anything.

Provencal refers to the southern region of France where lavender is abundant. Using herbs de provence gives you a little taste of French cooking in your own kitchen. If you can't find herbs de provence in the grocery store, check out Mountain Rose Herbs. I use their blend and it's phenomenal!

Here's what you need:

2 TBSP olive oil
1 yellow pepper, cut into thin strips
1 orange or red pepper, cut into thin strips
1 teas minced garlic
1 pinch sea salt
1/4 cup white cooking wine
1/2 teas herbs de provence

In a saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pepper strips and cook until they start to brown.

Add the minced garlic and sea salt. Then stir in the white wine and cook until the peppers are softened and most of the liquid has evaporated. Sprinkle on the herbs de provence and enjoy!
