Corn-Bell Pepper Relish
I had to come up with a quick side dish that will not take a long time to prepare, and a healthy one at the same time.
This dish turned out awesome, it was delicious and healthy as a side dish to any meal, and tonight I paired it with frozen readymade chicken patties, from the freezer to the oven, cannot get simpler than that…Just keeping it real here!
Tonight I did not feel like cooking an entire meal, because I wanted to test a chocolate cake recipe I wrote the other day, and I did not want to be in the kitchen all night long after a busy day at the office…
I promise to post the cake recipe if it comes out the way I invasion it.
.3 cups frozen corn
.1 cup chopped green bell pepper
.1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
.1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
.1 tbsp butter
.3 tbsp olive oil
.1/2 tbsp salt
.1/4 tbsp black pepper
.1/4 cup whipping cream
.2 medium shallots chopped
.1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
.1 tsp grated fresh ginger
.1 tsp lemon zest
In a large skillet over high heat, add olive oil and butter, add chopped shallots and the mixture of bell pepper, sauté for 2-3 minutes or until slightly brown.
Add salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, grated ginger, lemon zest and mix well.
Add corn and cook for 2 -3 minutes just to heat it through, add the whipping cream and cook for 1 minute or until slightly thickened.
This recipe could be completely transformed in to vegan dish, by replacing the butter with coconut oil and the whipping cream with coconut milk, its equally delicious. Enjoy!
