This is an all-purpose recipe. Delicious on crostini, on roast vegetables or potatoes, stirred into a soup or served with beans. I remember reading about Romesco sauce for years and never thinking it would be something I’d like. Then I had to make it for a column for the paper – delicious! Now I’m a huge fan. This recipe comes from “Vegetable Literacy” by Deborah Madison.
This recipe is adapted from one prepared by Asha Gomez of Spice to Table at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. No lemongrass? It will be fine without it.
This is a recipe from Jerry Slater, former owner of H. Harper Station. This stuffing also works well for tomatoes.
This simple recipe came from Trader Joe’s. A great way to consume all kinds of peppers.
If you’re going to use your peppers right away you can store them on the counter, but they start to shrivel pretty quickly. For longer storage, put them in your vegetable’s crisper drawer stored in a paper bag.
Anchovy optional here, but hope you’ll give it a try.
Adapted from a recipe in “Afro-Vega: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed” by Bryant Terry. Use a little bit of one of the Scotch bonnets in place of the jalapeno, if you like.

Are you a fan of Mark Bittman? Here’s a recipe from How to Cook Everything (Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition) with a few variations.
Bittman says: If you want restaurant-style coleslaw, you take shredded cabbage and combine it with mayo and maybe a little lemon juice. This version is far more flavorful with far less fat. I like cabbage salad (which is what coleslaw amounts to) on the spicy side, so I use plenty of Dijon, along with a little garlic and chile (you could substitute cayenne for the chile or just omit it if you prefer), and scallions.
This recipe is from chef Eddie Hernandez of Taqueria del Sol – a low-fat spread that he prepares “all the time at home” for a healthy, flavor-packed snack. Maybe you have some peppers tucked away in the freezer from this summer? Those will work fine.
