stuffed peppers! Vegan MoFo day 3!
One of the lovely ladies I work with gives me produce out of her garden from time to time. The last thing she gave me was a bag filled with about a dozen HUGE green peppers! Now, I do enjoy green peppers, but I wasn't sure how I was going to eat so many without them going bad. I figured the smartest thing to do was to stuff them, so I could freeze any leftovers for another time.
I made my filling with a mix of tofu, onions, tomato paste and rice as the base ingredients. I also added loads of spices, hot sauce, soy sauce and garlic oil to the mix. Baked them in a covered dish until the peppers were cooked through and topped them with some nooch. Amazing. The best part will be pulling a couple out of the freezer when there's five feet of snow on the ground and tasting the freshness of summer.
