EARTH ANGEL VEGANS HOT BANANA PEPPER AND TOMATO SANDWICHES are a family favorite. My mom used to whip these up every week during the summer when hot banana peppers are plentiful. She used a ton of oil to fry them up but I find they are just as delicious leaving it out! Sometimes they are mild and sometimes they are H O T ! She always left the seeds in and so do I because I love spicy food. I also love to add fresh sliced mushrooms.. If you do add them before you add the tomatoes and let them lose some of their liquid.
Hot Banana Peppers and Tomatoes
1 large bell pepper cut into strips (remove seeds)
5-6 hot banana peppers tops removed and cut in half (I leave seeds in for hotness… you can remove them) AND WEAR GLOVES IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE
1 15 oz can of stewed tomatoes
1/2 to 1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon of salt
In a dry non stick pan over medium heat start to saute the peppers … the seeds may pop and crackle and the peppers will start to slightly brown… just stir them around while they are starting to soften, adding splashes of broth as needed to keep from sticking. When they are wilting and slightly browning add the tomatoes and a splash of broth…. keep cooking over medium heat and stirring and adding splashes of vegetable broth to keep things moist and saucy. When the peppers are soft and the tomatoes have coated them all with a sauce they are done. So good with crusty bread! Love them over mashed potatoes too… especially when I add mushrooms!
