Main Dishes

Stuffed Peppers


1 small green pepper
1/4 cup celery finely chopped
1/4 cup zucchini (or asparagus) finely chopped
1/4 cup mushrooms finely chopped
5 ounces of ground lean meat (beef, veal, turkey, chicken or a mixture)
1 teaspoon soya sauce
1/2 teaspoon Frank's Red Hot Sauce (add more or less to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste


Cut the top off the green pepper and remove seeds and ribs. Boil pepper for 3-4 minutes to start the cooking process. In a small bowl, mix rest of ingredients well. Stuff meat and vegetable mixture into pepper and replace top. (If you chose a very small pepper, the top may sit on the filling.) Place in a shallow baking dish and bake in a 400 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.

I count this as 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups of vegetables depending on the size of my pepper.
