IMG_20160330_134107

As you can tell by the photo of this dish, food photography is hard.

But making these stuffed mini peppers is not.

They would be great as a secretly healthy party snack or appetizer. Or you can eat it with a spoon like me.

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 7 oz extra firm tofu (about half of a regular package of tofu)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes (mine were soaked in oil)
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 bag of mini bell peppers or 4 regular bell peppers

Directions:

  1. Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until onions become translucent
  2. Add everything except the bell peppers to a food processor and pulse until smooth
  3. Stuff mini bell peppers with the filling, or dip in slices of regular bell peppers
