Directions

In a Dutch oven, combine the oil, garlic, black pepper, sea salt, crushed red pepper and 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the fennel and stir to coat. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the water evaporates and the fennel is beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bell peppers and the remaining 1/4 cup of water. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the peppers are beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Check periodically to be sure there is still some liquid in the pan, add a bit of water if it looks like it's in danger of sticking.

    I LOVE this stuff!!!! I put it on 1/2 cup of eggbeaters in the a.m. and my guinea pigs appreciate it too as they get the fennel tops. I just can't figure out how to save it to my nutrition tracker! I click the button but it doesn't work! Thanks for adding this recipe - 3/7/13
