Caramelized Onion and Bell Pepper Fusilli (low histamine)

šŸ§„This is a delicious, quick, and easy weekday (or anytime) meal! Caramelized red onion, colorful bells, fresh garlic, and olive oil make this sauce. This veggie trio is seasoned with sea salt, garlic powder, coconut sugar, and fresh oregano and basil. It’s seriously delightful.šŸ˜‰

šŸI went with @jovialfoods brown rice fusilli, and tossed it in olive oil, and seasoned it with sea salt and crushed pink peppercorns.

šŸ˜‰Be generous with the sauce when serving. It packs so much flavor! Top with more crushed pink peppercorns.

That’s it!Ā

**GF/DF/LOW-HISTAMINE (I followed mastcell360 low histamine foods list very strictly initially, then added some foods from the SIGHI list as I began to tolerate more foods, all under the care of a dietitian. A low histamine diet is restrictive and not meant to be followed long-term, as nutrient deficiencies may develop.)**
