Stuffed Peppers Dinner

Image

When I’m in the mood to cook something with a little extra sustenance, I go towards stuffed peppers. Once your stuffing is ready to go and stuffed inside the peppers all it takes is a little time to cook in the oven and you’re done! The particular stuffing I use includes ground meat; you can use any sort you like or take the meat-less route and use quinoa, gluten free pasta or veggies.

Here is the recipe to my stuffing:

  • Red bell peppers (stems cut to make a lid and de-seeded)
  • Ground Meat
  • Cilantro
  • 1/4 cup rice
  • Parsley
  • Garlic
  • Tomato sauce (organic or make your own)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin

Mix everything together and use the sauce to pour over the peppers once they are stuffed. Chop up a few potatoes to throw into the mix if you like. Line all the peppers in a baking tray with a little olive oil and throw into the oven at 350 till the peppers are soft and the meat is cooked (usually takes 1 hour)

Apple Cider Vinegar

If you spend a little time in the kitchen, you’re probably using all kinds of ingredients and one of them may just call for vinegar.                                                                                                                      Maybe you don’t have the ingredient and just want a substitute or are looking for an alternative and something with a slightly better taste, apple cider vinegar is the way to go! It is produced from aged, crushed apples which definitely give a few added benefits over your ordinary vinegar. My personal favorite is Trader Joe’s organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar.

Roasted Pumpkin

Just because the temperat10441492_10200921402957673_5160449468765283682_nure is rising, doesn’t mean meals need to follow suit. I love pumpkin in every season, not just the fall and winter! Here is a simple side dish idea or even a snack idea that is always very, very YUM!

  • Preheat oven to 250 F.
  • Cube pumpkin
  • Coat in olive oil
  • Sprinkle with Celtic sea salt
  • Roast until slightly browned and soft
  • Enjoy with any entree or eat them alone!

 

Have a beautiful day everyone!!
