I need help using all my veggies
Ok, I'm wanting to get in this habit of planning ahead...

last night I ate a cinnamon roll and fresh green beans until my eyes popped out

I have a veggie share from a csa so I need to get off my butt and use it better
I have some bell & sweet peppers, does anyone have a good recipe for stuffing them w/o meat & anything spicy? I have basmati rice, fresh sweet corn, yellow taxi tomatoes & some other heirlooms, kohlrabi, summer squash, fresh onions and garlic...mostly looking for what to add to the veggies to give some flavor
I have fresh basil, rosemary, dill, chives, oregano
dried sage, cardamom, cilantro, cinnamon, paprika, umm, nutmeg, allspice, thyme, ginger, cloves, acefeda (sp?) from india (I love super hot indian & ethiopian food - miss it!)Oh! and we always have fresh eggs from our chickens

I've always been a recipe book kind of girl, but I'm feeding
ds - no sugar, very picky
dd - no wheat, popcorn, most dairy - thank goodness for colby & jack cheese!
DP-Crohn's his veggies have to be way over cooked, nothing dry or hard to swallow, no spicy stuff, but he can eat garlic and loves it.

Can you eat bulger, or do you eat soy? With bulger you would use it just like ground meat (I've seen it used in chili for example) in stuffed peppers. If not, you could use the soy crumbles by morning star farms or the ilk to stuff them, both with the basmati rice. I make a killer stuffed pepper for a girlfriend of mine with Crohn's with those crumbles.

He can eat pork and I can have the local butcher grind it for me, I was just hoping to fill them with veggies in a tasty way. We ended up doing a stir fry last night but we are all tired of stir fry
