Cumin and Carrot Stuffed Peppers

Once again, sorry it took me a few weeks to post this recipe, but do you see where I was staying at the time?  There was way too much snowy fun to be had to hole up inside the condo we were staying at to write this recipe.  Breckenridge was amazing, and coming back to a condo that was equipped enough to do some cooking made it even better to hunker down in front of the fireplace with good food and company.


As I mentioned before, I was pretty proud that I was able to create good food with an empty pantry and still keep the costs down for feeding five people for three and a half days.  Brushin' the shoulder off....


Cumin and Carrot Stuffed Peppers

- 5-6 small sweet peppers
- 4 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped

- handful of parsley, torn (reserve some to garnish the plate)
