Balsamic Roasted Peppers and Onions

Since focusing on eating more of a plant-based diet, I’ve found myself eating a lot more bell peppers.  Sure they are scrumptious bites of yumminess but I love the color they add to every dish.  As part of a healthy diet, nutritionists recommend eating a rainbow of colors.  Bell peppers make it extremely easy to incorporate a variety of colors.  The amazing part of this recipe is that it doesn’t use any oil so it’s a really low calorie dish.  I could eat these by themselves all day long but they’d be a great compliment to fajitas, salads, or as a side dish.

The only work involved in this dish is cutting them veggies and stirring them once.  Couldn’t be simpler, right?  I used 1 red bell pepper, 1 green bell pepper, one yellow bell pepper (although I would argue that it’s actually orange), and one red onion.  I added a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and two teaspoons of thyme.

Then into a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Stir after 20 minutes and roast another 20 minutes.  Out comes peppers and onions roasted to perfection!

I wasn’t sure how they would be heated the next day as leftovers, but they were just as delicious.  I just added them over rice and enjoyed a different meal.
