Blistered Shishito Peppers Instead of Cheese and Crackers

Posted on

A heart-healthy, delicious hot appetizer, Blistered Shishito Peppers are often on restaurant menus—but did you know they are a cinch to make at home? (And if you’re like me and don’t care for bell peppers, know that shishitos are delightfully different: a mild, ‘sweet’ pepper, their flavor is not at all like bell peppers.)

At your next dinner party (or just for fun on a weeknight—they are that easy) serve blistered Shishitos as an amazingly easy, delicious, and far heart-healthier alternative to high-fat cheese and crackers.
