Happy Meatless Monday! Make this Indigenous Cuisine inspired vegan stuffed peppers utilizing all the spices traditionally used with ground meat recipes.

Vegan Red Kidney Bean Stuffed Peppers in a Tagine

Recipe by Rina Oh



2 cups red kidney beans, cooked

1 cup corn kernels, cooked

1 cup kasha, cooked

1 small onion

1 cup fresh parsley

4 medium peppers

4 small tomatillos

1 roma tomato

2 jalapeno

1 teaspoon garlic ground

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon cumin ground






Combine red kidney beans and parsley with paprika, salt, and garlic powder. Pulse for 30 seconds until mixture is coarsely chopped; transfer to a bowl; add kasha, corn, and toss together.

Using the same processor, combine tomatillos, roma tomato, onion, jalapeno, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Process for about 1 minute on high speed.

Slice pepper tops off leaving about ½ inch. Remove the seeds and discard. Add stuffing mixture and press firmly down midway through. Pour tomato mixture into tagine or baking tray and cover peppers with tops. Cover the tagine with lid or baking tray with foil and bake in the oven for about 2 hours. Remove from oven and divide into four bowls. Serve immediately!

Pimms Cup Cocktail Recipe

Pimms Cup-2web
Are you planning a Weekend Social? Or a nice picnic style outdoor brunch,, a polo game? I sampled this cocktail for the first time a few years ago at a polo launch party at Alton Lane. My friend, who’s a fabulous producer Matt Paco invited me to his friends store where they were celebrating another year of polo. I don’t play or ride horses, but I sure do admire drawing them. And I have a soft spot for preppy boys.


I had crushes on so many during my teenage years- until I went to art school and I started liking artsy types. There’s a classic allure to a man wearing a felt 150% wool blazer, pink chinos, and pocket square. If he knows about the arts and fashion, and food…I’m all ears.
