Most people love those brilliantly colored and flavorful bell peppers in their meals, but what’s the easiest way to get them there without all those pesky, bitter seeds? The answer is so simple that most people overlook it entirely. Forget all the scooping and washing that you may have done in the past and cut into a world of no-seed bliss. Here’s how to cut a bell pepper the quickest, most efficient way.
1. Cut Off The Stem and Place Stem Side Down
First, cut off the stem of the bell pepper and place your pepper that side down, with the bottom facing up.
2. Cut in Diagonals
Next, imagine the seeds inside. They are connected near the stem and form a small to medium sized clump. Cut from the top (technically the bottom of the pepper since it is upside down) in a diagonal so as to not touch the seed clump inside. Continue making these cuts around the pepper until your seeds are completely free from the sides of the pepper.
3. Slice and Dice
Throw away the seeds and start slicing and/or dicing your beautiful pepper. Add to your favorite meal and enjoy!
