Veggie Meatballs with Onions and Peppers

10 Oct

Another wonderful Italian dish I enjoyed eating in Julia’s Kitchen, meatballs with onions and green peppers!  My dish is a bit different compared to my mother’s  because I replaced the meatballs with a vegetarian version. Thanks to the wonderful market of vegetarian replacements I am able to replicate this wonderful dish!  Of course I could make the veggie meatballs from scratch but that will be another day!  So you ask where to find these veggie meatballs. You will find them at  Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and some of the other conventional markets. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Slice one green pepper and remove the seeds (if you’re a gardener save the seeds to plant later or share)

Slice 1/2  medium onion and slice one large to medium pepper.

Green Peppers, Onions sliced.

Place all the above ingredients in a large fry pan with 2 tbsp. of olive oil.

Add  the veggie meat balls, depending on how many you want to eat.

Fry and toss with a spatula on low heat until the onions and green peppers are tender and veggie meatballs are hot and slightly browned.

You can quicken the process with the meatballs if they are frozen, by placing them in the microwave for about 50 seconds.

Chop a sprig of fresh parsley and sprinkle on  the veggie balls and the green peppers, give them a gentle toss once more.

No need for more seasonings the veggie balls are already seasoned and the onion and green pepper enhance the flavor.

Serve with you favorite pasta dish or on a roll.

Marino’s Fried Onion and Green Pepper Sandwich

11 Sep

This sandwich is named after my dad! He loved to make Fried Onion and Green Pepper Sandwiches! When he made this sandwich the whole house would smell so good with the aroma of fried garlic and onions!   I have always enjoyed eating this sandwich which brings back fond memories of my mom and dad cooking in the kitchen.  The sandwich has a  hint of garlic and a little bit of heat with the sweet taste of green  peppers smothered in olive oil. It  goes well with a glass of red wine and can be served for lunch or dinner.

  • 1 Green or red pepper
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped
  • 1 small hot pepper whole

In a large fry pan cover the bottom with olive oil and bring the heat to medium.  Add  the whole hot pepper, the sliced onion, and the chopped garlic to the pan and fry until slightly brown.  Add more olive oil as needed.  Add the sliced green pepper and sauté a few minutes. Lower the heat and place the rolls on top of the onions and peppers to soften.   Remove the pan from heat and serve!
