These stuffed peppers are one of my Sunday staples. I’m always craving them, so I usually end up making them every couple weeks, because they’re so delicious! I make my homemade tomato sauce first and let it simmer a few hours. If you don’t have the time, a couple jars/cartons (60 oz total) of organic tomato sauce will work just fine. They also freeze well, for a quick dinner.

Ingredients

4 Organic Green Bell Peppers

1 Cup Quinoa, cooked (I season mine while it is cooking with parsley, oregano & black pepper)

2 Veggie Patties, microwaved (I use Amy’s Sonoma Burgers)

1/4 Cup Vegan Mozzarella Cheese Shreds (I use Daiya)

1/4 Cup Vegan, GF Breadcrumbs (optional)

1/4 Cup Dried Parsley

1/4 of an Onion, diced

1 – 2  Flax “Egg(s)” (For 1 Flax “Egg”: Mix 1 T Flax Meal with 3 T Warm Water, let sit for a couple minutes)

2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

Sea Salt & Pepper, to taste

60 oz Homemade or Organic Tomato Sauce

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

2. Wash peppers. Cut around the stem(s) and remove.

3. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise, remove seeds, and place in a 9 x 13″ pan.

3. Mix all remaining ingredients, except for sauce, in a large bowl. One flax egg should hold all the ingredients together well. (If not, use two flax eggs total)

4. Spoon mixture into peppers, filling them and packing them.

5. Pour sauce all over peppers, filling the pan almost covering them.

6. Cover with aluminum foil and cook for 1 hour 30 minutes.

7. Let cool and enjoy 🙂

Happy October! Guilt-free PSL

TheSubtleStatement.com Guilt Free Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is my favorite season, crisp weather, pretty foliage, pumpkin everything and I feel like it’s the time I can get most creative with fashion. Last year I posted a guilt-free PSL (& some yummy 3 ingredient pumpkin cookies), but this year the modified version is even easier to get you right out the door. By the way, how cute is this planner?

DIY Homemade Christmas Loaf


DIY Holiday Loaf GiftI love to bake, so I love sharing baked goods around the holidays. Sugar and gingerbread cookies are a must, but I love including a Christmas loaf and of course adding some festive packaging. I usually buy a set of 6 mini decorative loaf pans and one recipe usually fits the bill to fill each one. Search Pinterest or Google to choose your family & friends’ favorites, cinnamon is usually a safe bet. I found a recipe for Cinnamon Bread on Julie Blanner’s blog and her adorable packaging inspired mine, as well!

I bought some cinnamon sticks a while ago, which served as unique decor. I always keep a spool of twine on hand, it never fails with pretty packaging.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
