HMR Five Bean Curried Squash Stuffed Peppers

HMR Diet Stuffed Peppers

That title is a mouthful. A DELICIOUS mouthful!

I was roasting a squash. And I had some left. So I mashed it. Then I realized I had some small purple bell peppers in the fridge that needed to be cooked. And then the idea began to form. And my goodness it was a filling idea!

HMR Healthy Solutions 5 Bean Stuffed Peppers

Serves One Hungry Me!

  • 1 HMR 5 Bean Entree
  • 3/4 lb Bell Peppers (in my case it was five small peppers)
  • 1/2 cup mashed Butternut Squash
  • 2 tbsp dried Minced Onions
  • 1 tsp Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp Granulated Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the tops off of the bell peppers – trim the edible parts off the top that you have removed, they can be used in the filling! I had four small ones and one really tiny one, so I chopped up the tiny one as well.

Mix all other ingredients together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Fill the bell peppers with the mixture. Place them in a baking dish. I used a large loaf pan and made foil balls to help prop them up. You could also use muffin tins or mini pie pans depending on the size of your peppers (you just want to make sure they don’t tip over as they cook and the shell softens).

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until desired doneness. Everything is already cooked through except the shell so it will really depend on if you prefer a crisper exterior shell/pepper or a softer pepper.
