It's All About The Stuff

I had bought some tofu awhile ago and have been trying to decide a recipe to use it in. I finally came up with something this morning as I was looking in the fridge. I had some bell peppers that I didn't want to go to waste and knew just the thing to make. Some stuffed peppers using the tofu. I have never tried tofu and never made anything with tofu so this was a new experience for me. As I was cooking I did try some of the tofu and was quite impressed with the taste. The peppers did turn out quite well and very tasty too, well this is just my opinion on this. I am wondering how Randy will feel when he has one of the peppers for dinner this evening. I will let everyone know tomorrow what Randy's thoughts were.

Tofu and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients

1 cup uncooked rice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu, drained and diced

1/2 cup marinara sauce

salt and pepper to taste

1 red and 1 yellow pepper, top cut out and seeded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook rice according to directions on the box. Set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, stir in garlic and tofu. Cook for about 5 minutes. Mix in marinara sauce, season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook and stir until tofu is evenly brown. Add the cooked rice into the tofu and sauce. Stir until well blended well. Fill each pepper to the top with tofu and rice mixture. Place stuffed peppers in a glass baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
