Walnuts stand in for ground beef in this Tex-Mex-inspired stuffed pepper. This recipe comes to us from Chef Lisa Sereda, executive chef of Wine Time . Chef Sereda cooked it for the Meatless Monday Rapid Fire Challenge at the 2019 International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York. Serves 8 – 10 - 6 quarts of water - 12 medium sized Anaheim peppers - 2 cups diced yellow onion - 2 tbsp minced garlic - 3 cups roasted peppers - 6 cups roasted walnuts - 2 1/­­2 tbsp cumin - 1 tbsp cayenne pepper (plus or minus depending on spice index) - 2 tbsp paprika - 4 tbsp white sugar - 1 tbsp salt -  1/­­4 cup lemon juice - 2 tbsp olive oil - 6 cups shredded white cheddar (more or less depending on cheesy preference) - 2 cups crumbled feta - 1 cup full fat Greek yogurt (to make the pepper vegan, skip the cheese, feta and Greek yogurt) - Non-stick cooking spray - Diced fresh chives for garnish   Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bring water to full boil in large saucepan. Cut peppers lengthwise down one side from stem to within 1/­­2 inch of tip. Boil peppers in water for about seven minutes or until pepper turns an olive green color. Remove and place in ice bath and remove seeds and veins from pepper. Drain and pat peppers dry. In separate pan sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent. Pulse roasted walnuts in food processor or chop until the consistency of sautéed ground beef. Add chopped walnuts to onion and garlic and cook until mixed through. Chop roasted bell peppers in food processor until almost a liquid consistency. Add to walnut mixture. Add cayenne, paprika, cumin, sugar, salt and lemon juice. Sauté on medium for about five minutes until the mixture begins to come together and most of the moisture has evaporated. Place peppers onto prepared cooking sheet (spray bottom of pan with nonstick cooking spray before placing peppers on pan). Stuff each pepper with desired amount of walnut meat mixture. Cover each pepper with generous amount of white cheddar (omit for vegan pepper). Cook uncovered for about twenty minutes until cheese is melted and slightly browned. Garnish with crumbled feta, a drizzle or scoop of Greek yogurt and fresh chives.   The post Walnut “Meat” Stuffed Pepper appeared first on Meatless Monday.
