Bacon Wrapped Cherry Peppers

Cherries
6 jarred hot cherry peppers— halved through the stem, seeded, drained and patted dry
1/3 cup cream cheese, softened
12 thin bacon slices (6 ounces)

Preheat the oven to 350°. Stuff each cherry pepper half with a heaping teaspoon of cream cheese and wrap with a slice of bacon; secure with a toothpick.
Arrange the stuffed peppers in a large ovenproof skillet and cook over moderate heat, turning, until the bacon is browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for about 5 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the cream cheese is hot. Serve the stuffed cherry peppers warm.

Keralan Vegetable Stew
ACTIVE: 20 MIN TOTAL TIME: 1 HR SERVINGS: 4

2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons finely julienned peeled fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
12 fresh curry leaves or 2 bay leaves
2 serrano chiles, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
Coarsely ground black pepper
1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed
Salt
1 medium Yukon Gold potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1/2 pound green beans, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup vegetable stock or broth

In a large saucepan, heat the canola oil. Add the ginger, garlic, curry leaves, chopped chiles, turmeric, 1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper and 1/2 cup of the pearl onions.

Add the coconut milk and simmer, partially covered, until the vegetables are tender and the coconut milk is slightly reduced, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Discard the bay leaves, if using, and serve.
