Yummy yummy in my tummy

Tonight's menu:
Hummus (albeit store bought) with flax seed bread
Cabbage & veggie soup (fresh new massive pot)
Stuffed peppers with ground beef

Hummus & flax seed bread

Excuse the candy cane spreader, I couldn't find any non-seasonal ones in the spur of the moment.

Cabbage & veggie soup

See February 2nd post

Stuffed peppers with ground beef


- 5 stuffed peppers, de seeded
- 1/2 can of crushed tomatoes
- ground beef, amount depends on size of peppers and if you want to make some extra meat balls on the side
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped/minced
- 3 tbsp brown rice

In a big pot, mix water with crushed tomatoes. In a bowl, mix together ground beef with garlic and rice. Mush together with hands. With a spoon, fill the peppers with the ground beef mixture. Once filled, place peppers in big pot with tomato sauce. Ensure that there is enough water to reach the tops of the peppers or at least most of the way and with a ladle take some of the sauce and pour on top of the peppers so they fill up with liquid, otherwise rice won't cook. Turn on burner and cover pot with lid. Cook for approximately 30 minutes. Once it starts to boil you can turn down the heat to a simmer. We put sour cream on top and always use bread to mop up the sauce.

Plate, serve and enjoy!

Don't throw the tops of the peppers away, save them for a dish the next day!
