FYI... you can used crumbled tofu in this and never even miss the meat and make it a vegetarian dish! Sounds great!

I used Kale for this recipe and didn't follow through on the last part of the recipe which involves putting the mixture into bell peppers. I cooked the mixture on the stovetop with a lid on the pot for 30 minutes and then put the pot in the oven for another 15 minutes at 350 with the lid on and them 10 more minutres with the lid off to help the mixture thicken. I also substituted water for low-sodium organic vegetable broth, I doubled the amount to 4 cups. The hot sauce or red pepper flakes are a must in my opinion. I cannot believe my DH didn't add any salt and he had seconds!

This recipe is excellent! We substituted black rice for the brown rice to get the extra benefits and it was delicious. Just discovered "black rice" and we love it!

Good recipe, but a little dry. A little underseasoned for my taste. Next time I will use more garlic, and maybe some black beans in the filling. Adding chopped tomatoes and/or making a tomato sauce would add a little moisture.

Could someone please verify--is the really an entire 1/2 cup of garlic? It seems like so much. Thanks!
