Hello my joyous readers,
A couple of weeks ago I went grocery shopping at McEwan Foods which is a foodie's dream! This grocery store has everything you need for healthy gourmet. Plus many prepared foods in case you need a healthy meal in a snap.
I was inspired in the produce section as you can see to create some stuffed peppers. I created a vegetarian option as well as a chicken option. They turned out delicious and really fulfilling! Packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals and incredibly satiating, I hope these stuffed peppers become a regular in your home.
I had a bunch of friends over on a recent Saturday night and Walker and I cooked for them. These peppers were a hit!
I also made these peppers with Mennonite chicken. They were equally as delicious!
Follow the same ingredients as above, minus the tamari and cayenne.
Using 1/2 to 1lb of ground organic or Mennonite chicken, saute until fully cooked with the onion and garlic. Add 1 cup of tomato sauce to the ground cooked chicken. Stuff peppers and bake for the same amount of time.
Walker and I often go to an Italian restaurant in Leslieville which inspired another recipe we created with ingredients we bought from McEwan's -- tuna white bean croustini. They have a really great fish and seafood counter at McEwan's. I will save that recipe post for another day. It was smashingly yummy!
For dessert, we had some mint Giddy Yoyo dark chocolate. It's raw, wild, Ecuadorian organic chocolate and is the best chocolate on mama earth. Seriously, once you eat Giddy Yoyo you will never go back to processed chocolate again. In fact, we had Giddy Yoyo chocolate bars at our wedding for all our guests (as you can see in the photo below), that's how much we love them!
And of course we had vino! With our appetizers we had my favourite local white wine called Connect White by Southbrook in Niagara, Ontario. It is organic, fruity, but not sweet and it is very refreshing.
