Foodways …In the south green peppers are a staple in most gardens and menus if even you don’t grow you own. The peppers and arugula in the garden have not matured yet so these were brought from the market. 

Growing up my mom had green peppers in the garden & I think like most southern households there were at least 50 recipes on how to use them but none as popular as “stuff peppers” right? Usually served  with ground beef  or turkey. 

Because I don’t eat meat a lot I decided to do a little throwback but jazz it up a little with those lightly discarded green peppers before it was too late with a healthy tuna bowl.

Also this is a good option if it’s too hot for cooking & you prefer something light.

Ditch the bread for the usual sub and go for greens instead. Adorn the green peppers with leaves and you’ve got a little evening bistro at home! Dry the seeds and use for planting… Valaaaah!

Pinching back your Basil plant encourages new plant growth that will expand horizontally, adding more leaves, this is what you want. With fingertips or kitchen shears just below the last flower. So, then what do you do with the flowers? Two ideas:

  1. Add to compost pile 
  2. Top your off favorite Italian or poultry dish with this beautiful finish.

Caution: It’s highly aromatic so add little & go slow.

Here it has just a splash of Champagne Vinaigrette….so good!
