Ingredients
  1. 1 cup dry lentils
  2. 7-8 large bell peppers (you can choose any color you like)
  3. 1 tsp unrefined coconut oil
  4. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1 onion, finely chopped
  6. 1 medium zucchini, diced small
  7. 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  8. 1 medium tomato, seeds removed and diced
  9. 1 tsp fennel seed, roughly chopped
  10. 1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped fine
  11. 1 tsp paprika
  12. 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (feel free to add more to taste if you like more heat, or leave it out if the kiddos aren’t a fan)
  13. 2 tsp fine ground sea salt, or more to taste
  14. 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, or more to taste
Instructions
  1. Soak dry lentils in a bowl filled with pure water overnight.
  2. Rinse lentils and prepare them according to the instructions in this post. While they cook, wash and dry your peppers. Set aside 1 pepper for dicing/filling—remove seeds and ribs from this pepper.
  3. Using X-Acto blade, slice off the top of the first pepper. Twist and lift off the top and carefully remove the seeds and ribs. Then carve the eyes and mouth, and repeat with all of the peppers. Put aside.
  4. Prepare corn kernels, diced pepper, onion, zucchini and tomato. Prepare your herbs and garlic.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Place coconut oil in skillet, and sauté onion and pepper for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and cook for another 4 minutes. Add tomato and corn and cook for 3 minutes.
  7. Stir in remaining ingredients, including cooked lentils. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Spoon mixture into the peppers and fill to the brim.
  9. Place lids back on peppers and place them into a glass baking dish lined with unbleached parchment paper.
  10. Bake for for 25 minutes.
  11. Serve, smile and enjoy!
  12. Store leftovers in a covered dish in the fridge. Reheat in the oven at 300°F until warm—about 10 to 15 minutes.
