Pistachio Crunch Muffins
2 cups whole wheat flour
¾ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup old fashioned oatmeal, dry
½ cup organic pistachio kernels, chopped
1 Tbsp Calumet baking powder
1 Tbsp orange peel
½ tsp salt
¾ cup skim milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup canola oil
1 egg (or ¼ cup Egg Beaters)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and table salt, stirring with a whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the sugars and the butter and beat with hand mixer until well-blended. Add the Egg Beaters to the sugar/butter mixture and beat well. Add the banana, sour cream, and cardamom and beat until well-blended. Then, add the flour mixture and beat at a low speed, just until moist. Stir in pistachios, making sure that they are incorporated evenly throughout the batter.
Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (such as Pam). Distribute batter evenly among the 12 muffin tins. Place in oven for ~17 minutes and check for done-ness. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of each muffin comes out clean. Yield: 12 generous muffins.
Mix flour, sugar, oats, pistachios, baking powder, orange peel and salt in bowl, stirring with spoon until well blended. Add milk, applesauce, oil and egg all at once. Stir lightly just to mix. Don’t over mix or texture will suffer. Spoon into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon topping over.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown, turning pan around after 15 minutes for most even browning. Cool 5 minutes then remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Makes 12 large muffins.
(Note: You can make these muffins as large or as small as you wish. You may need to adjust the baking time accordingly.)

Stuffed Peppers with Walnuts
For a healthier meal use all organic ingredients. Increase the quantity of the Walnuts to taste. For a mostly Raw Meal just fill the Peppers but don't bake.
For a Cool cooked meal follow the recipe and bake the Stuffed Peppers, remove from oven and let cool and then place in refrigerator until cold. Serve with Summer Salad for a Cool meal for the hot summer days.

3/4 cup dried brown lentils, rinsed and drained
1 1/4 cups unsalted vegetable broth
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 teaspoons crushed fresh garlic
3 1/4 cups cooked brown rice
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (try Organic Vegan Parmesan Cheese)
1/4 cup chopped organic walnuts (add more if large peppers or for more crunch)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (brand Real Salt)
1 can (1 pound) unsalted tomato sauce or 1 lb of Organic Tomatoes pureed in a Cuisinart
To make filling, place the lentils and broth in a pot and heat to a boil. Simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes until the lentils are tender and the broth has been absorbed.
Lightly oil a large skillet using olive oil, and preheat it over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and garlic and stir to mix. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. Add a few teaspoons of water or vegetable broth if the skillet seems too dry.
Remove skillet from the heat. Stir in the rice and lentils, then the cheese. Stir in the walnuts and set aside.
Cut the tops off the peppers and remove seeds and membranes. Divide the filling among the peppers and replace the pepper tops.
To make the sauce, combine the thyme, salt, and tomato sauce. Place the peppers upright in a deep casserole dish, and pour the sauce around the peppers. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour, until the peppers are tender.
