Using bell pepper buns as a gluten-free substitute for bread is simply a delicious way to trade bad carbohydrates for a crunchy delicious vitamin C filled veggie bun.
Bell peppers are cholesterol lowering vegetables that pair perfectly with grilled foods or can be used to make sandwiches like chicken and tuna salads. Using a bell pepper adds nutrients and at 24 calories per pepper is a great way to just carbs and calories.
I love to grill a portobello mushroom, brushed with herb infused olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper, and enjoy it on bell pepper buns with all the fixings!
Bell Pepper Buns
- 1 bell pepper per person
Remove stem and core pepper
Cut pepper in half and gently flatten
Fill with your favorite sandwich filling
I often use the unflattened halves as an open face sandwich.
