Sweet Stuffed Pepper with Beet & Sunflower Seeds (video) gluten-free, vegan

I adore finding new and healthful ways to incorporate beetroot into my weekly diet. Beetroot is often over-looked as an ‘I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-it’ type food. Well worthy of  our attention, it is ridiculously healthy – right up there with the healthiest of foods. Beetroot is…

  • rich in nutrients
  • has been shown to support healthy liver function
  • helps to lower blood pressure
  • has excellent anti-oxidant properties

It is also very versatile and goes well in salads, juices, stews, bakes. If you are interested to learn more about the health benefits of beetroots check out this article here: Health Benefits of Beetroot

In my latest culinary beetroot adventure, I demonstrate how to make a delicious, gluten-free, vegan, baked-sweet-bell-pepper, stuffed with a medley of other health affirming foods like beetroot, coriander and sunflower seeds.

      Thank you for the kind words Audrey… perhaps you’ll come up with a delicious variation of your own too.
      People do say that about my videos, calming, soothing and all that… I don’t really see it myself – that’s me being excited 🙂 LOL!

    These are incredible!! I love the beetroot filling – which is incredible alone as a stand alone patty but stuffed in a pepper it brings a new brightness to it all! The sauce is also a must try – really complements the dish!!

      Awesome Jenny – delighted to hear it. I love your thinking with the ‘stand alone pate’ option too. So pleased that you tried the sauce… it was created especially for this dish.

    This is georgeous!
    So innovative.
    I am really enjoying your calm presentations, the ease and simplicity, yet somehow complex tastes in the food?
    I need to keep going as I will not succumb to,packets etc. but am finding that a lot less time is easier nowadays. Your recipes have it all.
    Thank you so much.

    Wow these peppers were amazing ! Very hearty and filling . I served the ginger sauce over top and I have to say its one of the best gluten free vegan meals we’ve had. A definite 10 on our list. Please keep them coming Trinity ! Thank you, and love your videos!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with
    your site. It seems like some of the written text within your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
