But, just cause I'll eat almost anything or at least try, almost anything, it doesn't mean I don't like to eat meat-free from time to time.
Really, I like meat-free meals.
And yesterday I hit it out of the park. Well, I lobbed a good one.
Wait, it isn't baseball season just yet, but with the sun and everything outside, I'm getting anxious.
Sorry, my mind wandered a little there, but I caught it before it escaped.
We, as in the Senior Center, were given a lot of Green Peppers earlier in the month. They were lovely, and we used some in a salad, we chopped up a bunch and froze them, and then I got the bright idea of making some Stuffed Peppers for our seniors. So we did.
But, there are some among us who don't eat meat, and I wanted to make sure that they were able to have a great meal as well.
So, I made a lovely filling, and stuffed them, baked them off, and served them. This was the solitary one that was left over yesterday, so I took it home and had it for breakfast.
And I have to say, OMG, they were so good, and in fact, I'm planning a repeat, soon.
But this time it will be a private party of one. And I'm going to go for a little healthier version as well.
I plan on using some brown basmati rice.
I wish I had pictures of the process to accompany this, but, I was cooking against the clock, as usual.
I took a couple of carrots, two small zucchini, an onion and a little garlic, sauteed them in a pan with some olive oil until they were soft. Sprinkled them with a little Badia Sazon seasoning, then mixed them in with about 4 cups of cooked rice. Stuffed them into some green peppers and they baked for about an hour, then we covered them. They were served with a dollop of Creole Tomato Sauce.
And I'm going to try and recreate that recipe so I can share the how to's on that, cause the flavour was out of this world good.
Hmmm, the possibilities...
(and a donation was tendered for my take home lunch).
