Vegetarian Zombies Comfort Food
So it all started with a grain mix and a new Trader Joes, you know what it's like, you're in a new store and they stock the shelves a little differently and suddenly things you've never even seen in other stores are front and center and you impulse buy,. That's how I ended up coming home with a grain, something I never buy, cause I usually have the base ingredients, and can do my own mixing, thank you. Sigh, I bought it, so I followed label directions and cooked it, but the freezer was fish free, which meant, yay we're going vegan, or well rather vegetarian.
Grains meet Pepper,
1 onion, sliced
4 small peppers, or 2 regular
1.2 pkg grain mix, cooked according to directions
cheese of choice, i used akawi
nut of choice, i used cashew
Here are the grains, I cooked them in veg broth with a little butter according to package instructions, the grain mix included a lot of quinoa and Israeli couscous.
Four pretty peppers, great roasted, but I sauteed them here.
Saute onions, til golden, add peppers and cook til soft
