Here is a picture of my salmon pate stuffed bell peppers. I sprinkled some raw sesame seeds over the stuffed green peppers.

vegggeeemom, I am glad you think they look delicious. Alissa really came up with a good one when she came up with this. It really does taste like salmon.

Just know that green bell peppers are not ripe, so red is the way to go, they are so sweet and succulent.
Green bell peppers are not ripe red ones. Many raw foodists will not eat them, I am one of them.

rawpriestess, green bell peppers were the only ones they had in organic. They did not have organic red bell peppers. This was my only option at the time.

Wonderful Samuel last name Wilson! BTW - I sometimes eat the green peppers simply because I do like the taste - hold over from my old days -I also love the mock salmon pate - I made it last week and added sea lettuce to it - wham! it was fantastic - hubby (who was hating pates - comapred them to baby food), wanted more!
Thanks for posting the picture

Dragggon says the same thing about pate's he doesn't like the texture, so I only blap them a tad in the food processor so they are still mixed, but chunky, he likes this much better, then I mix them by hand. He is almost as picky as I am.
Samuel Wilson, just thought you should know about the green peppers, Victoria Boutenko refuses to eat them, so I do too. Many on this board won't eat them either because they are not ripe, I didn't know you knew that.
so, sometimes we must state the obvious for those newbies who are lurking about. And we wouldn't want them to think eating green peppers is part of the raw, ripe, fresh, vegan plan -- or maple syrup, or Braggs, Frontier Vanilla flavoring, or or or now would we?

What about orange or yellow bell peppers? We have tons of them in the garden right now and I've been eating them (along with the red).
I personally think that orange bell peppers are among the prettiest veggies of all.

OH, I know, I love all the colors, Well, this is what I have heard, that in Bell pepper land, although I am sure there are many varieties, that the green are not ripe, they are actually red bell peppers, that will turn red, when allowed to ripen.
Now, I've asked my resident expert -- Dragggon, and he says, that there are indeed tons of different kinds of nightshade plants, and even pimentos are a kind of pepper, we do grow about 20 different kinds of peppers, (I just eat them, I let him grow them) and he says, that the yellow and orange are hybreds, however the green are the red ones, not ripe.
He has even bought green pepper plants, and they will go to red, if left to ripen, or if you pick them green, they will go to red if left in a sunny spot.
So, that is from the expert
and you know what an expert is, don't you?
An "x" is an unkown quantity
and a "spurt" is a drip under pressure.
can't let him get a big head, now can we :o)

That does look good. I haven't tried the pate' yet.
I like it when peppers are mixed in with other food (like the 'potato' salad recipe) but I don't like them like that, where I could get a big chunk of one in my mouth. My mouth isn't so great with the spicy things.

jenna rose, these bell peppers were not hot at all. My friend ate one of my stuffed bell peppers and I know she does not like things spicy hot. I only mixed in cayenne with my portion of salmon pate. I like to add cayenne to just about anything to up the hotness level. I added quite a bit to this, probably to much for most to handle, but I like things hot and spicy.

Rawpriestess thank you for the info on the green peppers. I absolutely had no idea that the green were actually unripe. I always prefer the red peppers because of their sweet taste, but have been eating a lot of the green peppers in my salad thinking all the time that I was getting a good supply of green foods in my diet.
I love this board, there is always something new to learn. So once again Thank You for the info.
Samuel, your food pics look very yummy......

I knew about the green peppers being immature, basically because sometimes there are SO MANY peppers in the summer that it takes us a while to pick them all and many have turned by then. (Now we do it on purpose). But if the orange and yellow are hybrids, does that mean they are not ideal for eating?
