Any sweet pepper will work in this side dish, but I love the delicate spiciness of the long, pointy gypsy pepper. I use organic beans, and serve alongside a veggie burger.

I must confess that I did not love this dish at first. But that is only because my whole life I have had a weird distaste for beans. I just don't like the sensation of biting into one. The worst part is that I'm a vegetarian! Anyway this recipe looked so good I decided to reassess my feelings about beans. Well I still don't like the texture. But! I threw the batch into the blender with some lemon juice more garlic and garlic powder and tahini to make hummus which turn out to be just delicious. So I say that although I changed the consistency a little this dish is superb and only crazy bean-fearing folks would ever hold anything against it:) Read More

I am on a sodium free vegetarian diet (Fuhrman) and I was desperate for bean recipes. This one hit the spot! I love the sweetness of the pepper. I used Braggs Liquid Amino in place of salt and it was perfect! I also used 1/4 pound of dried beans (cooked) instead of canned. I will be making this again! Read More

I made this as a side dish to another recipe at this site...garlic chicken. My husband and I loved it! I wasn't sure what a gypsy pepper was so I used a yellow pepper and was amazed at what a great flavor this dish had. Thank you. Read More

Very flavorful recipe! Now that I've made the recipe per the instructions I might try to change it up a bit per my personal tastes. Some ideas would be to add an additional type of pepper--maybe a hotter one or just green pepper? I prefer only a hint of oregano flavor so a pinch was more than enough. One other option might be to add some minced garlic in the skillet with the onions and pepper. As is the recipe is a winner and tasty. Have fun trying different spice blends geared towards your tastes. I did pack the extras in my lunch the next day and it reheats up very well in the microwave which is an additional bonus! Thanks for sharing! Read More

This is a very simple but very good dish! A few other reviewers seemed to feel it was bland however it's not meant to be a highly seasoned dish. I followed the recipe as written and the only addition I made was to dress it with a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil which made it a little more moist and added a little more depth of flavor. I served it over hot pasta with some Parmesan. Delicioso! (I suppose if you want to punch it up a bit some fresh or canned roma tomatoes would fit in nicely as well.) Read More
