Sunday, 08 October 2017 12:06:18 -0700

Ingredients:

Peppers:
  • red bell peppers 6
  1. Cut peppers in half lengthwise, clean.
  2. Put cut peppers in steamer basket and steam ~5-10 min. At that point they should be slightly softened but hold shape well.
Merinade:
  • ginger, chopped 1/2 tbsp
  • green onions 6
  • celery, chopped 1/4 cup
  • sesame oil 1 tsp
  • white wine 1 tbsp
  • clam juice 1 tbsp
  • pumpkin seed butter 1-2 tsp
  • ground chicken (dark meat) 1 lb
  1. In a bowl mix chicken with 1/2 of the ginger, green onion, celery, sesame oil, wine, clam juice, pumpkin seed butter. (See Note below.)
  2. Marinate for 30 minutes or more in refrigerator.
Stuffing:
  • garlic, chopped 6-8 clove
  • hot oil 1/2 tsp
  • "salt", black pepper to taste
  • olive oil 1-2 tbsp
  1. Saute rest of ginger and garlic over high heat. Add hot oil, then add chicken mixture. Keep it moving but gently—idea is having small "chunks" vs. tiny "grains".
  2. As chicken browns, add rest of onions and celery and keep stirring until chicken is done. Adjust flavoring. Then set aside.
Garnish:
  • Parmesan cheese 2-3 tsp
  • celery, chopped 1/4 cup
  • green onion, chopped 2 onions
Baking:
  1. Arrange peppers in greased baking pan. Spoon chicken mixture into
  2. shells. Top with grated parmesan, chopped vegetable garnish.
  3. Bake 10-15 minutes at 350°F.
pumpkin seed butter is hard to come by unless you make it yourself. Sunflower seed butter can be use instead.
