Today I’m sharing a recipe. Hooray recipes!
My very favorite side dishes are the ones that I can prep and stick in a pot or a pan then forget about for 45 minutes while I prepare the main dish. Bonus meal idea: side dishes AND main dishes that I can prep and forget. Why haven’t more of those been invented?
But I digress.
Fried peppers and onions are one of my favorite prep and forget side dishes because they take very little effort but provide a tasty little addition to pretty much any type of meal. I often serve this with tacos, but it also goes really well with Spanish omelet too.
- Melt the butter and olive oil together in a pan.
- Add peppers and onions, cooking over low heat for at least 30 minutes, or until peppers are very soft.
- Add garlic, basil leaves, and salt and cook for a few more minutes.
- Serve immediately.
