A delicious Daniel Fast side dish or snack.

bell pepper boats

Bell Pepper Boats

4 bell peppers, halved, cored, seeded
1 cup Hummus
1 large tomato, seeded, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1 tablespoon diced avocado
1 teaspoon sunflower seeds

Slice off a very thin strip off the bottom of each pepper half so that the cut side is up. (This will allow the pepper to lie flat while you stuff it. Be careful not to take too much off or the mixture will spill out.) In a small bowl, mix Hummus,  tomatoes, and olives. Place about 2 tablespoons of the Hummus mixture into each pepper half. Top with diced avocado and sunflower seeds. Serve.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 pepper half)

Recipe Notes

  • Use Confetti Hummus or Pumpkin Hummus.
  • If not serving immediately, sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice over avocado to prevent browning.
  • This dish will taste best if the Hummus and peppers have been refrigerated.
