  • 20-25 small sweet peppers
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • 5 ounces plain goat cheese crumbled or sliced
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice juice from one lemon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium/high heat. I used canola oil because it has a high smoke point.
    1 tablespoon canola oil
  • Add the peppers and stir to coat in the oil. Allow to cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until smoking and blistered to your liking. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste.

  • While peppers are cooking, combine goat cheese, milk, lemon juice, lemon pepper, and garlic in a food processor or blender. It should be creamy. If too thick, add a bit more milk. If too thin add a bit more goat cheese.
    5 ounces plain goat cheese, 2 tablespoons skim milk, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic
  • Serve peppers warm with goat cheese dip. Enjoy!


  • Use a high heat neutral oil like canola or vegetable.
  • Allow the oil in the skillet to get hot before adding the peppers.
  • Let the peppers sit for a minute before moving them in the skillet so that they blister. Turn each one over so they cook on all sides.
Storage: Store leftover peppers and goat cheese dip separately, in airtight containers. They will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
