Tonight I wanted to make something interesting. Something healthful, but not boring like my regular brussels sprouts and chicken breast kind of dinner. And after browsing Veronica Noone’s ahhmazing food blog (Roni’s Weigh), I decided to make a variation of her Roasted Red Peppers Stuffed with Cheese and Cucumbers.
This is what I came up with.
I started off with a yellow sweet pepper.
Placed half of it to roast in the toaster oven, along with some broccoli (sprinkled with garlic powder, black pepper and paprika).
While that was going, I diced up about a quarter of a large cucumber (it may have been half. i’m not the best at measuring things)
Added 2 triangles of Light Laughing Cow Cheese, garlic powder, oregano, black pepper and sea salt.
Then mixed it all up. I think I was supposed to remove the cucumber skin, but it worked with the recipe nonetheless.
I decided to microwave-cook a small potato at the last minute and epically failed, so I salvaged what I could and ended up with that. What can I say, I’m not the best cook.
And then, TA DA! This creation magically appeared on my plate! – Yellow Sweet Pepper Stuffed With Cheese and Cucumber, happily paired with roasted broccoli and that very very sad potato.
It’s not gourmet, but at least we tried!
I mean just look at them. Don’t those little roasted broccoli florets look delectable?
And I most certainly did enjoy my adventurous attempt at trying something new!
I’m now also totally stocked up with all sorts of interesting eats (some of which I have never cooked on my own before) thanks to my grocery run this evening.
Is it just me or does anyone else find grocery shopping incredibly fun?
Especially when it comes to buying these little beauties.
Oh why didn’t I explore the health/organic aisle before!?
Anyhow, enough procrastinating on my homework!!! See you in the morning blog world 🙂
