Today’s the second day of Vegan MoFo! Earlier today when I was thinking what I was going to make for dinner I couldn’t decide what filling to stuff some peppers that have been staying in my fridge for a couple of days.  I had Orzo Stuffed Peppers a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to change it up a little bit.  So I decided to make some Vegetable-Bean-Saffron Rice Stuffed Peppers.  I created this recipe with what I had on hand tonight.   It turned out really good.  The addition of the white beans made these peppers awesome!  The saffron gave it a flavor and color!  If you want to make them here’s the recipe:

VegetableBean-Saffron Rice Stuffed Peppers

1 onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
1 stalk celery
1 zucchini chopped into small pieces
3 garlic cloves minced
1 medium tomato chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
6 bell peppers for stuffing
1 can of white beans
2/4 teaspoon saffron
1/4 teaspoon Thyme
1 tablespoon Tomato paste
1 1/2 cups of long grain rice
3 3/4 cups of water or vegetable broth
1 Bouillon cube (leave out if using vegetable broth)
Breadcrumbs for topping peppers
Tomato Sauce for serving (optional)
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat a saute pan to medium heat. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion, carrots, celery and cook for a 2-3 minutes. Then add the chopped bell pepper and zucchini. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook until the vegetable start to get tender crisp about 8 minutes. In the meantime heat the 3 3/4 cups of water or vegetable broth. When heated add the saffron. Add the rice to the vegetable mixture. Cook it for about a minute. Then add the water. Bring it to a boil then simmer for about 20 minutes until the rice is tender.
Preheat oven to 350.
Blanch the peppers in a pot of boiling water for about 3-4 minutes. After blanching them put them in cold ice water. Oil a casserole pan and place the peppers in it. Stuff the peppers with the rice mixture. Sprinkle the peppers with some breadcrumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the topping is golden. Let cool for a few minutes. Ladle some tomato sauce to a plate and place the pepper on the tomato sauce.


I have been absent for a while but I am back!! I always wanted to create a Blasamic Glazed Tofu dish!! And I did! Last night I made this tofu and it was good, it was a bit bland in the middle because I didn’t press long enough. I am still working on this recipe. I served it over some pasta primavera!!! When I perfect the recipe I will post it up!

I made some Eggplant Rollantini from V’con! These were really good! I wish I had the spinach though. I had a lot of eggplant this week as you will see!!

A creation of mine!! Rigatoni with Eggplant “Croutons”! This was fairly simple to make. I breaded and fried the eggplant. I then got some of my homemade marinara sauce heated up and cooked some rigatoni. and then threw that all together. Then topped it off with these Eggplant “Croutons”. Very good!!

This is a Roasted Eggplant Soup. I got this recipe from The Mediterranean Vegan Cookbook! This was a very good soup. I have started using this cookbook a lot more it gives me a lot of inspriation!

Orzo Stuffed Peppers- I loved these peppers! I adapted this recipe from the Mediterranean Vegan Cookbook. I added some more vegetables to the orzo filling. This is really simple to make and very tasty!!
