flame seared peppers and corn

You know it’s summertime when you are enjoying the smoky combination of peppers and fresh corn just off the cob. The lively flavor of the Cilantro/lime yogurt provides the perfect contrast to this side dish and BBQ favorite.  It’s a healthy and flavorful recipe that never gets boring!


Serves 4.

Recipe by: Arlene Jacobs



3 red bell peppers

2 ears corn

2 tbsps

Salt and Pepper to taste



  1. Use 1 tsp. of the extra-virgin olive oil to rub over the red peppers and corn. Place peppers over a gas flame or the grill, and sear using a pair of tongs to turn frequently until blackened on all sides. Repeat with the corn. Place the peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let cool.



Cilantro/lime yogurt:

1 cup yogurt

½ tsp. grated lime zest

1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. coarsely chopped cilantro

Salt, to taste


Combine all ingredients.



Searing the peppers not only gives a smoky flavor, but it makes them very easy to peel after resting in a covered bowl. Don’t feel you have to get every bit off.
