Over the weekend I was in a creative mode... And I found myself lost in time in the kitchen creating some divine, luscious and healthy creations that could be perfect for your next dinner party.... Not only did they look awesome but they also tasted fantastic! I wanted to share them with you becuase I thought you might enjoy making them too.
Here's the recipe so you can prepare them yourself. Let me know how you get on with them and any variations you come up with. Please do leave me a comment, I really do LOVE to read your replies :)...
Ingredients (for 1 stuffed capsicum)
1 - 2 big coloured capsicum or pepper (seeds removed)
1 tsp tamari, braggs liquid amino acids or soy sauce (if using soy sauce check the label has no MSG.)
1/2 big organic carrot (grated)
1/2 zucchini or courgette (grated)
1/4 red onion (finely chopped)
1/2 - 1 juicy tomato (all chopped up fine) - optional
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Fresh lemon juice to taste
1/2 tsp maldon sea salt (not iodised table salt)
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
fresh herbs to decorate (I used fresh parsley)
Assemble the dish by placing the capsicum in the middle of the plate. Sprinkle over the tamari/liquid amino acids or soy sauce in the base of the capsicum.
Then mix together all the ingredients for the filling. Taste. Season with a little more salt or lemon juice if needed. Then scoop the filling into the capsicum and pile high. The trick to this is making sure you have a solid wide base at the bottom. I pressed the filling quite firmly into capsicum then kept adding more and more filling.
Once finished sprinkle over the fresh herbs at the end and a drizzle of olive oil on the plate. Please do remember to add your thoughts or comments on the comment button.
