4 garlic cloves (minced)
½ small Onion (minced)

Side Dish of Vegetables and Red Potatoes Ingredients:
2 or 4 large red potatoes (peeled and cut into bite sizes)

3 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
2 cups of chicken broth or plain water
1 cup of almond milk

1 stick of butter
2 tablespoons of cornstarch (to thicken)
1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
2. Mix all the meat stuffing ingredients together.
3. Insert the meat stuffing into the bell peppers to the top and make flat. (Do not put too much stuffing over the top of the bell pepper because you will need space for the topping sauce to go on top but not to run over.)
4. Mix the topping sauce together.
5. Place and line the stuffed peppers up in either one or two glass rectangular/oval bread pans. (Any type of baking pans will do but bread pans prevents the peppers from falling over and puts them in the pan deep enough so when covering them with foil the foil barely touches the top portion of the stuffed peppers.)
6. Coat the tops of the meat stuffing with topping sauce. (Be liberal but not over flowing it has to just cover the top well.)
7. Cover with aluminum foil.
8. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
9. Remove the foil and allow to continue to cook for 20 minutes longer or until completely done.
10. The stuffed peppers are ready to serve with the side dish of potatoes and vegetables.
Side Dish of Vegetables and Red Potatoes Directions:
1. Put the vegetables and potatoes along with the other ingredients in a medium sized non stick pot with a lid and bring to a boil.
2. Allow it simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are done. Once done then add a tablespoon of water to the cornstarch, mix it and pour in over the vegetables and red potatoes and stir to thicken.
