Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients you will need:
2 whole peppers (either yellow, orange, or red, Green peppers don’t turn out well)
1 whole red onion
½ cup of Portobello baby mushrooms
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
2 garlic cloves or 1 Tbsp of garlic powder
2 Tbsp safflower or coconut oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice peppers in half.

Once oven has reached 425 degrees, place peppers on a baking sheet and bake with open sides up for 20 minutes.

While the peppers are baking you need a good open frying pan. Add oil and set heat to medium. Finely dice mushrooms… I prefer using a cheese grater. Dice the entire onion. Crush the garlic and mix with mushrooms and onions in the heated pan. Add your mixture into the pan and sauté for 5 minutes. Once the onions have begun to caramelize, toss in the remaining ingredients.

*An alternative to the oil is just 1 Tbsp of water, you just have to watch and stir more often.

Once the mixture has been sautéed, the peppers should be done with their 20 minutes. Carefully take out the peppers and keep them on the baking sheet. Take your saute mixture and spoon it evenly inside the peppers and continue to bake for 10 more minutes.

The peppers had been devoured before I had a chance to take a photo of the final product but they should look something like this: (You can leave the pepper stem on but I prefer to take it off.)
