With enough boiling, butter, salt, and pepper, pretty much any leaves are edible, provided they're not toxic.
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.

I know that they contain some type of chemical that spraying a tea made of them is supposed to keep tomato plants from getting various funguses.

From the link: "Plants whose names are given in bold italics have leaves that are of particularly high value as food sources. "

Bell Pepper is bold italics. I would have thought I would have heard of it if it is that popular as a food source.

I believe I'd research more first. They are of the nightshade family. If one could eat pepper leaves then they should also be able to eat potato vines too as they are the same family of plants.

Re: Are Bell Pepper Leaves Edible
Not sure who keeps on insisting that since peppers belong to the nightshade family then their leaves are poison. Potatoes also belong to the Nightshade family but we eat them!!! Pepper leaves ARE NOT POISON, unless of course you spray poison on them. My wife and I pick all the leaves off our pepper plants at the end of the season every year and cook them down like spinach. Been doing this for the last 20 years and haven't had a problem yet. We also prepare and eat Sweet Potato tops, Garlic tops, Radish tops and (believe it or not) Castor leaves (Although Castor leaves must be soaked several times over a couple days until the water stays clear to remove the alkaloids.

Re: Are Bell Pepper Leaves Edible
Don't rely on other species as reliable indicators of safety. Goats and horses will eat poison-oak with no effect, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stuff them in my mouth.

I would be HIGHLY SUSPECT of the green parts of any plant in the Solanacae (nightshade) family.

Potatoes, tomatoes, petunias, peppers, among others, are all nightshade relatives.

The only one that I can think of that is NOT very toxic is tobacco, and we all know that enough of it can kill.

Take care.

Re: Are Bell Pepper Leaves Edible
Tinola is a national dish of the Philippines. Nationalized after the occupation of Spaniards. Original ingredients are chicken, Green papaya, black pepper, onions, ginger and of course green pepper leaves. Tinola is not complete without the pepper leaves for a simple reason of non-existence flavour & aroma of the pepper leaves.

"Well how about that" the Filipinos have been digesting this for more than a century. However there seem to be no study of it's nutritional value, so, for now it's just for flavouring & aromatic purpose. Hope this helps.

My daughter-in-law is Filipino. She put green pepper leaves in her soup last week. The soup was delicious and so were the pepper leaves. She also uses sweet-potato leaves in her cooking. Haven't tried them yet.

Yeah, how about that poor penguin who ate sand after coming to Australia ? Mistook sand for snow....

They flushed him out and I they say they are ready to release him, or her...

Re: Are Bell Pepper Leaves Edible
I'm glad that there were several comments by people that know Asian food. I searched and was lead to this page because I was watching an Asian cooking show and thought they said pepper leaves. I have a few pepper plants with beautiful leaves and wanted to be sure that I heard correctly and that they are actually edible.

Thanks....

Bell pepper leaves , hot pepper leaves are all edible. gives a lot of flavor to soups & sauteed vegetables. Rich in iron for their deep green color.

Re: Are Bell Pepper Leaves Edible
To answer your question of verifying:
1. In your search engine type in the plant/part of the plant you are researching with the added word "edible?"
ALSO do a second search and type in the name of your plant with the added word "poinsonous? The reason for TWO research questions is in this example: RHUBARB. The stalk of rhubarb is a delicious edible for desserts and such. Other parts of that plant are extremely poisonous. SO always reasearch a plant with those two specific questions.

You will find that pepper leaves are deliciously nutrious. I have used them for years for their iron content for our children: simmeredin stews or shredded in a tossed salad.

What an idiot.

Crawl in fear through life, post fear, and don't bother looking anything up, because, well, you never know, and did you get an expert to give you permission?

Go crawl in your hole and shit yourself in private - the world isn't interested in your cowardice pretending to be common sense. You insulting jerk.
