Turkey Stuffed Green Peppers

Serve with iceberg wedge with creamy peppercorn dressing-

I have rediscovered green peppers after a long hiatus! I think it was largely this recipe which made me fall in love with them again. While I love the traditional version of rice and beef stuffed peppers simmering in tomato sauce, I wanted something different and this beef- and grain-free version does not disappoint.

Slow Cooker Tuscan White Beans

This is an extremely versatile bean dish. I have served this as a main meal over brown rice with lots of veggie sides and as a side dish to grilled meats. The leftovers are perfect for using in Wild Rice and White Bean Stuffed Tomatoes (see The Whole Meal for the recipe). The mashed garlic really adds unique flavor (as well as being great for cardiovascular and immune health).

Argentine Chimichurri

My mother’s good friend, Ester, is an amazing cook and entertainer who also happen to be Argentine. I have personally benefited from her culinary heritage and finally had her share with me some classic Argentine recipes. Chimichurri is probably the most well known, as it is always served with grilled meats, but each Argentine has his/her own way of making it. This is Ester’s version, fresh parsley only (many add dried oregano). This sauce is addictive; you’ll find yourself keeping a stash in the fridge to slather on everything!
