Perfect Shishito Peppers

Save your money and try making these at home!

by Dr. Riva Robinson in Food

You don’t have to spend $10 at a restaurant to get perfectly crispy, yet tender shishito peppers. Pick up a bag of peppers for $1.99 at Trader Joe’s, follow my easy recipe, and you’ll be snacking away in less than 10 minutes!

Shishitos are the perfect low calorie, nutrient- dense snack for the summer! One bag of Trader Joe’s shishito peppers has 140% of your daily value of vitamin C, 32% of your vitamin A, and 4 grams of protein. All of that with ONLY 60 calories, 12 grams of carbs, and 0 fat.

Plus, if you’re lucky enough to get the 1 spicy one out of 10 peppers, it will curb your appetite. That satiating effect is due to capsaicin, the chemical responsible for that spicy heat.

Bon appetit!
