Smokey Stuffed Peppers

The other day I found a beautiful, deep red, organic bell pepper and knew I had to make something extra special with this beauty. Originally I thought of making a dip and then using the pepper slices and some cucumbers in it, but decided instead to stuff it with a smokey filling. Here is how I put it together:

The Filling

1 Roma tomato

1/2 of a small, organic, green zucchini

1 stalk of organic celery

1/2 of an organic sweet onion

1/2 of a very small Haas avocado

1/4 tsp of smoked paprika

In a food processor or blender, pulse the first 4 ingredients. Then add the avocado and paprika and process to desired consistency. I made mine quite smooth.

To assemble:

Cut the bell pepper in half and remove all seeds and white ribs. Fill each half with the filling and garnish with broccoli sprouts. Serve with a side of lettuce and cucumbers to clean up any filling that spills from peppers when you cut them!!! It is seriously that good and you will want to scoop up every last drop! Enjoy.

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for our "change of season" even though we do not get to see the leaves turn colors or enjoy cool, crisp weather like most other states, I still am grateful that fall is here because that means gardening time for those of us in southern Florida!!!!!
