My Love Affair with Grilled Sweet Peppers
May, 2013 · By Coryanne Ettiene
The secret is out, I don’t have a sweet tooth. Maybe that is why baking has been the last hurdle in my kitchen journey? I would happily nosh on grilled vegetables from dawn until dusk, add to that a tangy vinaigrette and I could survive for eternity on nothing more. My love affair with grilled peppers started years ago while I was starving and near broke standing next to a street vendor in Syria….perhaps it was the hunger, quite possibly the vibrant color of the peppers piled high on a rustic platter…or maybe it was the timeless echo of love at first bite, what ever it was, I rarely go a week without stocking my fridge with grilled peppers and celebrating my wise choice to spend my last few coins on those grilled peppers. Admittedly, I frequently enjoy them right out of the fridge on the closest spoon I can find. When Sunset Produce asked me to create a recipe line up for Cooking with Coryanne for iFood.TV using their gourmet produce, I nearly bit their hand off at the prospect. From freshly stewed tomato sauce, to grilled eggplant and to the every captivating grilled peppers, I had the best time filming this series.
