Isn’t it awesome how some of life’s greatest food inventions are also the simplest? Just think about it. Layering a bunch of delicious things between two slices of bread? Genius. Slicing up potatoes so thin that they crisp in the oven? Downright Einstein whoever came up with that one. Here, at One Green Planet, one of our favorite simple food inventions is stuffed foods. That’s right. Taking one type of food and stuffing it into another. Who knew such a simple idea could be so fun!
Stuffed foods allow you to combine different textures and flavors in every bite, they offer a unique presentation, and they are super easy to make! All you have to do is choose a vegetable or other food that will act as a vessel, hollow it out, and then fill it back up with the stuffing of your choice. As straightforward as this process is, we like to think we’ve somewhat mastered the art of making stuffed foods. Don’t worry though, we’re willing to share all of our best creations with you. Where can you find them? In One Green Planet’s Food Monster app, of course! We have recipes for every meal of the day! Take a look:
Mornings tend to set the tone for a day. Granola bars are eh. Oatmeal is a little better. But you know what trumps all? A breakfast with stuffed foods! And the best part is that since stuffing foods is so easy, it won’t feel like a major hassle in the morning, especially if you’re tight on time. Just hollow out a pepper, carve out some meat of an avocado, or just make a deep cut into a steamed sweet potato. Then stuff your heart out! Tofu scramble, warm granola, fruit, nuts, and seeds all make great fillings! The possibilities truly are limitless on the Food Monster app.
Lunch and Dinner
If you find yourself constantly making sandwiches for lunch, or if your dinner plate always seems to be a sea of beige, it may be time to get some stuffed foods in your life! Stuffed vegetables are an excellent way to get more color in your diet. As, you’ll see in the Food Monster app (available here), bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, and squash all make great vessels for food. And while these foods are also delicious chopped up, stuffing them with all of the foods you would normally use as side dishes makes your life easier! Now instead of spending time and effort trying to get every part of your dinner in one bite, each bite already has all of the textures and flavors you want. Life hack!
