I eat the yellow one in salads. Yum.

Mr. Red is delicious in stir fry or chicken pasta.

The stupid green one sits in my fridge going mouldy and making me feel guilty.

Why do you buy it if you don't like it?

Fraggled Tue 31-May-16 19:12:03

YABVU. It is essential in a vegetable curry and lovely on a spicy pizza!

I won't buy green peppers because it's likely to be left.

HappyHeart87 Tue 31-May-16 19:12:29

Oh, I get the three pack because every time I think it represents good value. And every time I am wrong.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 31-May-16 19:13:17

There is a use for it but I cant think what!

In curries?

Green pepper is almost the only veg I don't like. It's a bitter fucker. Bleugh.

Put it in the stir fry or better still make fajitas using all three peppers

I hunt for the three pack that is red, yellow and orange! Feel very victorious when I find one! #hadalifebeforebabies

I always get the three packs, Dh likes the green one in a salad.,

DownstairsMixUp Tue 31-May-16 19:14:34

They are ok in fajitas but i do prefer the red and yellow

The green one is bearable roasted.

suze28 Tue 31-May-16 19:15:48

They are just wrong and I hate them. Too bitter to cook with or eat.

HoggleHoggle Tue 31-May-16 19:15:53

Green is my favourite one! <ducks>

Grilledaubergines Tue 31-May-16 19:16:16

Roast them. They lose their bitteryness and very nice indeed.

StickTheDMWhereTheSunDontShine Tue 31-May-16 19:16:18

I like them, but I used one in a chilli, last week and the damned ungrateful child I made it for complained that it wasn't red enough.

Pinkheart5915 Tue 31-May-16 19:16:23

I would eat the green ones in salad too bitter but Mr green pepper belongs in chilli, curry & on pizza.

My ds will eat green pepper chopped up, weird baby!

SpaceUnicorn Tue 31-May-16 19:16:24

I love green pepper, cooked or raw.

user1456843986 Tue 31-May-16 19:16:43

Green is also the least nutritious. They are all the same pepper just picked at different times!

coco1810 Tue 31-May-16 19:17:33

YANBU most pointless veg ever!

londonrach Tue 31-May-16 19:17:41

They have different uses, flavours..... (Im a pointed red pepper buyer only)

Moomintroll85 Tue 31-May-16 19:18:03

DS picks out microscopic pieces of them from his tea and whines in disgust. He'll eat pretty much anything else!

Mouikey Tue 31-May-16 19:18:17

All peppers are evil... End of!

pigsDOfly Tue 31-May-16 19:18:51

I use the green ones in stir fry and I buy the red pointy peppers.

I don't buy the three packs, I fine the yellow ones insipid and the red ones in the three packs always seem to have a slightly odd smell about them as if they're on the point of going off.
