Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

When I was a kid my mom made stuffed peppers with rice, hamburger, onion, and green bell peppers, and I'd eat the rice and hamburger with a generous dollop of ketchup but wouldn't touch the pepper. Now I'm a huge fan of stuffed peppers of every kind, and I came up with this recipe for Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers with Brown Rice, Mushrooms and Feta after a Kalyn's Kitchen reader requested vegetarian stuffed peppers last October. Since then I've made this several times and I think I might even prefer these Meatless Monday stuffed peppers to my usual stuffed peppers recipe with meat. For sure this has turned into one of those favorite dishes where I always make the full recipe so I can stash some in the freezer for another meal on a day when I don't want to cook. And if you have family members who might turn up their nose at the pepper part like I did when I was a kid, these brightly colored orange, yellow, and red peppers just might win them over.

Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers

Everyone has heard of grilled cheese, the sandwich, and what a beloved meatless dish it is. But for your Meatless Monday menu this Memorial Day, I'd like to recommend a recipe featuring a completely different type of grilled cheese. This recipe starts with halloumi, a cheese from the Mediterranean that has a high melting point. That makes it so the cheese can be fried or grilled, and cooking the cheese with one of those methods turns it golden brown and memorably delicious.   Read more >
