Arepas Stuffed with Corn and Peppers

Hola! Bienvenidos a Meatless Monday! I received another Summerland LA vegetable delivery yesterday, so decided to use some of the goods for the Meatless Monday recipe. We got some amazing Hungarian Peppers and I wanted to cook some of those first. I used the peppers as a filling for these arepas and they add just enough spice, but these aren’t spicy by any means.  You could top these with spicy salsa to add some heat.  They’re also great with fresh tomatoes or greens.

Meatless Monday: Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

I’m making today Taco Monday.  Any day can be a taco day in my book.  Occasionally, we are going to do special “Meatless Monday” posts where we post main dishes that are vegetarian.  Although we typically try to buy the grass-fed, free-range meat, it never hurts to eat less of it.  Meatless Monday does not mean we won’t post meatless dishes any other day of the week, we just are drawing attention to a meatless main dish.  Now, sweet potatoes are my favorite food. I would eat them with everything if I could.  They’re also a superfood, so I’m assuming I don’t have to closely abide by that “everything in moderation” thing… These tacos are quick and easy to make, which makes them a perfect weeknight meal as well.
