Sauteed Peppers with Garlic and Thyme for Taste & Create XVIV

For this month's Taste & Create I was paired with KC from Kit's Chow. It didn't take me very long to find a couple of recipes that I wanted to try. As I had just brought home a huge bag of bell peppers and I absolutely love garlic my first pick was easy: Sauteed Bell Peppers with Garlic and Thyme.

This recipe was super easy and real tasty too! I absolutely loved the combination of the sauteed garlic and bell peppers with the balsamic vinegar!! Apparently I can eat loads of these, simply because a) Garlic is good for the cardiovascular system, offers protection against many cancers, offers protection against asbestos and promotes weight control and b) Bell Peppers offer protection against free radicals, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, offer protection against rheumatoid arthritis, and appear to have a protective effect against cataracts.

Sauteed Peppers with Garlic and Thyme

6 Bell peppers
10 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
a pinch of thyme

Turn the fire on medium and heat the pan. Add a bit of olive oil to sauté the garlic.

Let the peppers cook for about ten minutes.Pour some balsamic vinegar over the peppers and toss to mix.Dish up. Serve at room temperature..
