Green Peppers are one of those vegetables that taste great raw, or cooked. I like all color peppers, green, red, orange, yellow, as a raw vegetable used in salads, or with dips. I also would like to share this recipe for peppers served hot, as a main course, or as a side dish. Peppers, like cabbage rolls, may be stuffed with meat or vegetable stuffing, so I selected the rice/mushrooms stuffing for this recipe.
The Great Lent begins on Monday, as it always does for the Byzantine Rite Catholics.
The Great Lent for Roman Catholics does not start until Ash Wednesday, so they have two extra days to enjoy meat meals. They also celebrate a very traditional Fat Thursday, when they enjoy their delicious “Paczki”, doughnuts.
I personally like to prepare meatless meals on Wednesdays and Fridays for the duration of the Great Lent, as well as during the full Holy Week, which is the week just before Easter Sunday.
Verenyky, Pierogi, Perogy, Dumplings, no matter what you call them, you will find them on every Eastern European menu.
This time I used Gluten Free Pizza Crust Whole Grain Mix, and the dumplings turned out awesome.
I will list each harvested vegetable individually, and link it to my favorite recipes posted previously, for your cooking convenience and pleasure.

Recently one of my readers inquired about some possibilities of creating varenyky dough from gluten-free flour, as they love these dumplings, but are seriously allergic to wheat.
I took their suggestion as a challenge for myself, and today I used White Rice flour to make the dough, and mashed Sweet Potatoes filling.
