Not really following any one diet trend, my recipe feeds show all kinds of "interesting" meals. Vegan are the most off the wall due to their lack of cheese, vegetarian are okay so long as they don't get complicated. It is the quick and easy, 30 minute meal types, that I find to obtrusive and fake yet finding a need to make them. Take stuffed bell peppers. These are a lovely treat served once a year or so, like turkey at thanksgiving or ham at Xmas. They just take too much effort to make and not everyone like them. In comes Unstuffed Peppers
. All the flavors of the real deal made easy.
Tomato paste was omitted as the recipe only called for two tablespoons and I didn't want to waste a 4 oz can.

Slop. This was no way close to stuffed bell peppers. It was a tomato sauce infused meat and rice mess. Tomato sauce over powered the peppers, the onions, the meat, and the rice. The best thing about this meal was the garlic crescent rolls served on the side. One serving each and this table and its counterparts were done. Chickens on the other hand, loved it. They are carb junkies.
