“This relish makes the most of sweet red peppers and tangy, caramelized onions,” notes field editor Trisha Kruse of Eagle, Idaho. “Don't be surprised if your picky 'veggie avoiders' go back for seconds.”

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine or reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute red pepper and onion in oil and butter for 2 minutes. Add garlic; saute 2 minutes longer.
  2. Stir in the wine or broth, basil, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until liquid is evaporated and vegetables are golden brown, stirring often.
