Earlier in the week, I came across a recipe for Grilled Black Bean and Rice Stuffed Peppers and decided to try them out for dinner tonight. I omitted the oil and used brown rice, but otherwise followed the recipe and seasoned to taste.
I went with a yellow pepper instead of green. I’ve always thought that green peppers get this weird toxic taste about them when they are cooked. I love raw green peppers but can’t stand em cooked. Odd huh?
You would think the best part of these peppers would be the pepper itself — but you’d be wrong! It’s the cilantro and lime combo! I forgot how much I L-O-V-E that combination (could be because it SCREAMS chipotle). All I needed was a big dollop of gauc on top. Mmmm.
Overall – two thumbs up on the peppers. Next time I think I’ll make some sort of salsa or guac to go along side it.
Stats on my pepper: 296 Calories, 62 Carbs, 3 Fat, 11 Protein, 11 Fiber (that’s a lot of carbs… wonder if they make low-carb beans and rice?)
First attempt at roasting veggies went ok (emphasis on ok). I think I actually overroasted them, but despite that fact they were still super tasty. I’ll have to play around with my roasting methods!
