Sorry guys, this is a local Austin product sold at Whole Foods downtown. No website is available but check out the natural ingredients.
Okay, now on to my old love...........ahhh the sweet red bell pepper. I haven't had these in so long. Have no idea why either! I think Janetha got me craving them again. She eats them like I eat carrots....by the bag full, haha!
So after I purchased these tasty veggies. I decided to make Stuffed Bell Pepper for dinner. I don't use meat or rice either. Its all about the pinto beans and veggies.
Canned Organic Pinto Beans
Red Bell Peppers
Millet Bread Crumbs ( Igrounded up the brown pieces of our millet bread)
chopped celery, onion , and carrots (about 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup total)
Almond Cheddar Cheese or Regular Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1. Slice the tops off your bell peppers and clean out the seeds. Then lightly coat your peppers with oil (olive oil, grapeseed, coconut, etc)
2. Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the peppers (opened faced) on a cookie sheet or foil and bake for 30 minutes.
3. While the peppers are cooking, mix all the filling ingredients and add any other flavoring you might need. I added a cumin as well to mine.
4. About 20 minutes into the cooking, take out the peppers and spoon in the filling. Place back in the oven for the remaining 10 minutes.
5. After 30 minutes, take out the peppers and place the cheese on top. Place back in oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.
6. Eat up! (I added some extra protein with some chicken sausage links, yet another love).
Love making these and forgot how simple it is.
Hope you had a great Wednesday. Any new loves out there?
