roasted poblano peppers stuffed with warm corn salad, cooking for vegetarians and meat eaters

Every summer when fresh peppers and corn show up at the market, I think about making this dish. The poblano peppers take a little effort to roast, peel, slit open and stuff, but it’s all quick work if you roast the peppers earlier in the day. The warm corn salad can be made ahead as well. And the “wow!” effect you’ll get at the table will be well worth the effort.

Turf ‘n Turf: Cooking for the Vegetarian – Omnivore Table

I salt and pepper some shrimp, and sauté them in a little olive oil for my husband, the Resolute Omnivore. I toss them in a little chopped cilantro and finish them with a couple of squeezes of lime.

Both the recipe for the stuffed poblano peppers and the shrimp can be found here on The Weiser Kitchen site, a new web-based magazine recently launched by a friend of mine, Tami Weiser. The site is designed to help people with various food allergies / sensitivities find recipes that fit them and their families. I will be writing a monthly column there called Steak and Kale, featuring recipes for the Vegetarian – Omnivore dinner table. As many of you know, I’m in the process now of wrapping up a proposal to write a cookbook on the same topic, so I hope you’ll check out Tami’s new magazine, and my column there.

And please wish me luck on this proposal !!! I’m in the home stretch now on it !!!

    Woohoo!! Good luck on the proposal–that sounds like such a great idea, something that I’d definitely use if I ever live with my current boyfriend (a cheese + steak-lover from Wisconsin…) Can’t wait to check out the recipe!

    PS. I know poblano and banana peppers are quite different, but do you have any ideas on what to do with banana peppers?? I have a handful that I was thinking about stuffing with quinoa or something, but they’re so tiny…

      Oh thanks Liz. It’s been taking a lot of time to wrap my mind around it and develop the idea out. And I’m submitting photos of a bunch of the recipes, which as you know takes a lot of time too. But I’m really enjoying the process, and we’ll see where it goes :-)

    Love the recipe. As always, inspiring. The new project sounds great. It is definitely I am going to check out. My son has lots of food allergies and have countless friends that are vegan, gluten free, so you have to start being creative when you are serving a bunch. Best of luck and I will let you know what I think.

      Tami’s site could be a great resource for you. It’s a brand new site, so it will take a little while to get it all up to speed, but she’s put a big investment into it and has some great people behind it.

    Good luck Susan!

      Thanks Norma! You’re a pro at this, so you understand even better than I that it’s a real process. And I completely agree, whatever happens will be the best thing – whatever it is :-)
