Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Beet

Organic Stuffed Beet Recipe

The stuffed beet cup was something I wanted to do just for the fun of it. I think as a side dish, especially at a small dinner party, it’s fun to have around. It’s really simple, and you can interchange the steamed veggies with whatever you fancy. The kids really like steamed broccoli and carrots, so that’s what I went with. A little note about flavor: Kid Two, Kid Three, and I all agree that a roasted beet has the texture of a buttered potato. We don’t know why, they just do. Enjoy!

Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Rond de Nice

Salmon Stuffed Ronde de Nice Recipe

Last week was Stuffed Vegetable Week here on the blog, and I didn’t have enough time to share this gem with you, so here it is. This was deemed to be juicy and delicious by The Papa, the kids, and one of their cousins who was over for a visit.

A note about the honey. You see, I was measuring it out when the whole lid popped off and honey went everywhere. If I had to guess, it was 2 TBSP. I was planning to use 1.5, but there could be as much as 3 TBSP, so please use your best judgement on this one. SO sorry. And we didn’t even get a funny picture of it happening.

Free and Friendly Foods Organic Cajun Pepper

Organic Cajun Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I have a riddle for you. What’s pretty on the outside and not that great on the inside? If you’ve read the Purple Pepper Post, you’ll know, it’s the orange peppers! Sometimes you get a bad one when it’s organic 🙁

When I was a kid, I had something so delicious, but I kind of only sort of know what it was. It was red potatoes, but with Cajun seasoning… or crab seasoning… see, I somewhat don’t remember, but I know that it was eaten near New Orleans, so it must be Cajun inspired at the least. In addition to that, I LOVED red beans and rice as a child. I could eat bowls of that stuff, and that’s where the inspiration for these peppers truly come from.

Now, some of you may know that the kids, especially Kid Two, hates spicy things. I have to always keep that in mind as I’m creating recipes, especially anything Cajun inspired 🙂 Needless to say, everyone really enjoyed the meal, however, I can safely say that if you’re a fan of spice, please feel free to add much more.

Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Purple Peppers

Organic Lemon Chicken Stuffed Purple Pepper Recipe

We were had by the peppers. I tell the kids whenever this happens that this is the “price” we pay for organic. You win some, you lose some. You’ll see in the image that there are 5 cute little peppers, one for each person. However, much to our surprise, all but one was bad on the inside. What amazed us is that they were all so perfect looking on the outside. Yet, I was able to do a small victory dance because hey, at least I got one to take a picture of.

Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Turnip Salad

Simple Stuffed Turnip Salad Recipe

Just because it’s stuffed veg week doesn’t mean everything has to have a long and complicated title, right? Even us foodies at heart have to take a break sometimes 🙂 Although this is a very simple idea, it takes real planning. If you use a large turnip, which I would suggest, you have to bake it before you can hollow it out. It’s simply too hard to accomplish when it’s raw, unless you have access to some really cool commercial kitchen heavy duty tools. Or maybe a sawz-all.

Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Breakfast Black Radish

Stuffed Breakfast Black Radish

Stuffed Veg Week has been a lot of fun for me. I’ve been able to introduce the kids to new vegetables we normally pass over, and I’ve also learned how hard it is to hollow out raw vegetables.

I made these Radish Cups for the kids for breakfast, and they LOVED the bacon. Hehe. They liked the radish chips, but no one was brave enough to eat the radish cup itself. If you have kids, I think you can agree this is a win. Anytime we can get them to try new foods, it’s a good day.

Free and Friendly Foods Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Organic Vegan Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

What’s this? Vegan eggplant parm you say? Well yes I do say! I was a bit afraid that the kids wouldn’t be too receptive to the idea, but interestingly, they all ate everything they were served. What I like about this particular recipe is that it’s vegan friendly. You can always sub in a protein of choice, however, this recipe is way cool because nothing went to waste. OK, here we go.
