Kale & Farro Stuffed Peppers-Packed full of nutritious farro filled with protein and fiber. Perfect weeknight dinner with a large green salad.
What do you do when you have peppers to use and you don’t want to have another stir fry dish?
I had some peppers in the fridge that needed to be used but I didn’t want to make another stir fry dish, so I decided it was time to have stuffed peppers. It had been years since I had eaten stuffed peppers, and back then I was still eating meat, so I always filled them with ground beef.
Now as a meatless eater I had to decide what stuffing to use. Quinoa or couscous would be nice but I decided to use farro because it’s a bit heartier with a meaty bite and it’s oh-so-delicious and filling.
Sautéed mushrooms onions and garlic seasoned with oregano and thyme, add chopped kale mixed with the farro and you have the perfect stuffing.To be perfectly honest with you the farro stuffing almost didn’t make in to the peppers, it’s just that good all by itself. Melt some mozzarella cheese on top and you’ll have the most delectable, delicious dish, perfect with a big salad.
Who says you have to have meat filling to make delicious and tasty stuffed peppers? Whole grains are great to use for replacing meat fillings, they’re loaded with protein and fiber.
