VeganMoFo has taken over the world! So many posts, so little time! It's been so much fun reading about everyone's stories and anecdotes, collecting awesome recipes, and even learning about intriguing German foods that I'd never heard of before (thank you Mihl!)
Today I made more phonies - pumpkin phonies. See, tomorrow is grocery shopping day, which means today the refrigerator looks quite empty and sad. We were going to have an Improper Cottage Pie for dinner but then I wouldn't have had anything to post for Halloweegan. So I was trying to figure out what to do, when I saw the lonely bell peppers looking at me from the veggie drawer. They just wanted to make themselves useful, so I picked them up and we had bell peppers stuffed with the (already prepared) improper cottage pie mince and croutons. I carved their faces like jack-o'-lanterns before I stuffed them and baked them at 400 degrees C for about 30 minutes.
I love'em! You can make your favorite stuffed pepper recipe and all you have to do to make them Halloweegan-friendly is carve them like a pumpkin before you stuff them. Of course the orange ones are the most "Halloween-y" but multicolor peppers are fun too!
