Have you ever heard of shishito peppers before? These are a popular pepper in East Asia, an incredible source of Vitamin C, and a very low calorie snack! They are so fun to make and eat, and I highly recommend adding them to your next meal as a side dish. Let’s get to it.

1. 1 bag of shishito peppers

5. Black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, & ginger



1. First, make sure you wash your peppers.

4. Season with: ¼ TSP of black pepper, ¼ TSP garlic powder, ½ TSP of sea salt, ¼ TSP of turmeric, 1/2 TSP of paprika, and a dash of ginger.
