So we are not all addicted to sugar...

So far every single post is about sugar, chocolate or more sugar. Not that I have anything against sugar, but honestly we all need to eat some vegetables once in awhile. So here you go the perfect vegetable dinner.

Here is one recipe that I have made quite frequently and it is super easy. Vegetarian Stuffed

VEGETARIAN STUFFED PEPPERS (why is there a yellow box around the recipe? I have no idea!)

2 cloves garlic

1 c. shredded zucchini

1/4 c. parsley, chopped

1/2 c. onions, chopped

Fresh herbs (I like oregano, basil and chives, but add whatever herbs you like!!)

Saute the above in a small amount of olive oil. Then mix in a bowl the following: 1 c. feta cheese 1 c. grated Parmesan cheese 1 egg Sm. amount of bread crumbs

Stir in zucchini mixture. Stuff 4 peppers (red and green). Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Add 2 tablespoons vinegar to pan drippings and pour over peppers. Serves 2-4.

A few tips:

1. It is so much cheaper not to actually buy oregano, basil, chives and garlic. Instead look for the brand Gourmet Gardens. It is usually in the fruit,vegetable, and herb aisle . Gourmet Gardens has tubes of different herbs. I like to buy those because they last longer then fresh ones and taste exactly the same.

2. It doesn't matter whether you buy red or green peppers, just choose whichever colors you like. I prefer green!

3. Also I tend to double the ingredients. That way most of the peppers have equal the amount of ingredients.

4. I like to cook brown rice for a side dish. If you have another idea for a side dish then please comment!!

5. ENJOY!!
