Spanish Rice and Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

1 cup of prepared organic brown rice

1 Can of Organic Black Beans, drained

1 Can of Organic Diced Tomatoes

1 Can of Organic Tomato Sauce

1 green bell pepper

4 Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow and Orange)

1 small organic yellow onion

1 clove of garlic, minced

Himalayan Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Directions:

Sauté onions and bell peppers with one garlic clove minced
Once veggies are sautéed, add a can of diced tomatoes and a can of black beans
Add salt and pepper to season
Add brown rice (make a cup of rice ahead of time. 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water, bring to boil, turn heat down to low and cover for approximately 40-45 minutes)
Add just enough tomato sauce so the rice isn’t “dry” but it shouldn’t be soupy.
Cut the tops off of red, yellow and orange bell peppers and boil them for 5 minutes and then stuff them with Spanish rice and pour a little bit of the tomato sauce over the top of stuffed peppers and bake on 350 for about 30 minutes (cover with tin foil if they start looking too done).

This is a delicious AND beautiful recipe …ENJOY!

Black Bean and Kale Soup

wpid-20140922_114319.jpg

I’m busy working and my stomach interrupts my thoughts, reminding me that it’s time for lunch.  I’m low on groceries and have no idea what I’m going to eat.  Going through my choices, I pull out some of my favorite foods and decide to create a new concoction and SHAZAM, I have a new soup recipe that is to die for!  Move over Rachel Ray and your 30 minute meals, because I am becoming the master of 15 minute meals…I guess laziness pays off (winks).

BLACK BEAN AND KALE SOUP

INGREDIENTS:

1 CAN OF ORGANIC BLACK BEANS (TRADER JOE’S)

1 CARTON OF LATIN STYLE BLACK BEAN SOUP (TRADER JOE’S)

3 HANDFULS OF ORGANIC KALE, RIPPED FROM THE STEM

1/2 CUP OF ORGANIC YELLOW ONION CHOPPED

3 ORGANIC MUSHROOMS SLICED

1/3 CUP OF ORGANIC SWEET MINI PEPPERS SLICED

1 TEASPOON ORGANIC CUMIN

1/4 TEASPOON ORGANIC GARLIC SALT

1/2 TEASPOON OF HIMALAYAN SALT

CRACKED BLACK PEPPER TO TASTE

DIRECTIONS:

COMBINE IN A MEDIUM SIZE POT, BEANS (I DRAINED MINE FOR A THICKER SOUP), ONION, PEPPERS, MUSHROOMS, CUMIN. SALT AND GARLIC SALT. SIMMER ON MEDIUM HEAT AND STIR (WATCH IT CLOSELY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DRAINED YOUR BEANS TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T SCORCH) FOR APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES OR UNTIL ONIONS, PEPPERS AND MUSHROOMS START TO SOFTEN.  ADD CARTON OF LATIN STYLE BLACK BEAN SOUP AND COOK UNTIL IT IS HOT, ADD KALE AND SIMMER UNTIL THE KALE IS WILTED (APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES).

WHAM BAM, THANK YOU MA’AM, YOU ARE READY TO EAT!  JUST SERVE IN A BOWL WITH A LITTLE CRACKED BLACK PEPPER FOR TASTE AND ENJOY!

YUM FOR YOUR TUM,
