Here's a way to celebrate the upcoming holiday that's both nourishing and fun. Carved stuffed peppers!


Carved Stuffed Peppers Recipe

"Carve" 4-6 large peppers and prepare stuffing mix. Use your favorite recipe or adapt this one to suit your family's tastes:
  • 1 lb. ground beef (grass-fed is optimal)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce (I like Bionaturae brand)
  • 1 tsp. of your favorite seasoning blend (we like Italian)
  • 1 c. soaked quinoa (see this recipe)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

I also try to add some raw liver to the mix. For more suggestions on incorporating liver into your diet, see this previous post.

Arrange carved peppers in baking dish. Steam the peppers by covering the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of water and cooking for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Once the peppers have softened a bit, remove from oven and pour off water. Stuff peppers with beef mixture and continue baking at 375 for 50 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. Serve and enjoy!
