Yeah Arden !! I think those are very close !!!!! Different pepper shape but similar stuffing ingredients. The only thing missing is that coating of chickpea flour breading or whatever...

I will try it out. Might work for Sunday !!! My guests would LOVE it. Heart

Thank you !!!!!!!!!!

re: Easter dinner ...
Hubby is making the full "Thanksgiving" experience ... turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, etc.
I am not interested in any of that ...
I'm not sure what I'll make yet, but I was looking at this, thinking it would be a decadent holiday treat ... http://www.food.com/recipe/artichoke-pot...ole-105649

RE: Meatless Monday
Sounds wonderful, Arden !! Barley is one of my favorite grains...Heart In fact, my Bro & I recently duked it out over hulled v.s. unhulled barley, ha !!!!!

I'd LOVE your recipe for the stew...

I just quit work 4 the day so am gonna make a simple n' quick Mongolian BBQ Stir Fry using my handy dandy Mongolian BBQ Master Sauce that I keep in the fridge. I'll throw in a bunch of veggies n' mushrooms and serve it over some short grain organic brown rice.

Also, for the fun factor Im gonnna bake some store-bought Veggie Eggrolls in the oven and whip up a quick dipping sauce (cuz the overly SWEET sauce packet they provide totallly SUCKS !!!!!!!!) Angry

HAPPY MEATLESS MONDAY, PIGGIES !!!!!!!! SmileSmileSmile

Wow, Arden that is gorgeous and I know it musta tasted awesome !!!!!

Only thing I'd add is some Tzatziki...

Do you make your own Falafel ?

I LOVE that you use red bell peppers in so many of your creations. They are so beautiful and sweeet and vitamin packed !!!!

And isn't it amazing that the TRULY "goood for you" food is so photogenic ?
SmileSmileSmile

Well, it is when YOU take the photos anyway... Tongue

we did have some dressing, it was (not pictured), Wink
I make my own falafel occasionally, but this was bought from a food vendor at Farmer's Market, they are very inexpensive, and very tasty.
I do love red bell peppers ... Smile
thanks for the compliment, BlushBlushBlush I think it helps to have appealing subject matter RolleyesTongue

RE: Meatless Monday
Here's a great meatless recipe for ya, Kim ...

"LENTIL SNOBBY JOES"

1 cup uncooked green or brown lentils (don’t use red, they cook too quickly and will turn to mush)

4 cups water

1 TBs olive oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely diced

1 green pepper, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 TBs chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup tomato sauce

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 TBs miso

1 TBs wet mustard (I use a brown stoneground, but you can use yellow or whatever you like)

1 TBs sriracha (or your favorite hot sauce)


1. Put the lentils and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer, cook for 20 minutes. Drain, set aside after cooking.

2. In a medium saucepan, sauté the onion and pepper in the oil for about 7 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and saute another minute. Add the cooked lentils, chili powder, and salt and mix. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, miso and mustard and stir until thoroughly mixed. Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes, or until thoroughly heated through.

Serve on your favorite toasted bun or bread, with fixin’s of your choice.

We like this open faced, on a toasted, buttered slice of Beckmann’s French Whole Wheat, or Trader Joe's Multi-Grain British Muffins with sliced avocado and romaine.


Here’s a link to the original recipe, this lady is credited with inventing the term “Snobby Joes",

http://www.theppk.com/2009/11/snobby-joes/

but there are many other versions out there, this is my personal spin on it
this is a big hit at my house
