Rika Zarai – Spring peppers

The book is called My natural medicine. It’s written by Rika Zarai, singer and writer from Israel.
She’s one of a kind health guru and all the advices from her book make sense and work. Written in 80’s, the book is like an author: straightforward and simple. We like her, and we’re trying to implement as much as we can from her philosophy in our everyday living.
This is one of ours all time favorite vegetarian meals.

2 meaty peppers (red or green)
1 cup cooked rice
1 cooked egg yolk
1/2 cup yogurt
handful of sliced black olives
splash of olive oil (3 tbsp.)

In her recipe it is emphasized that the vegetables are naturally grown and organic; the olive oil is virgin olive oil, and the salt is unrefined sea salt.
Of course, egg yolk is from free range chicken. And she gives some excellent arguments why to make natural choices.

Cut peppers in half and remove seeds. Put them in a grilling pan with olive oil, and grill them until they begin to soften a little.
At the end of grilling process put some crashed garlic in every pepper.
In separate bowl mix rice, egg yolk, black olives, yogurt and season with salt. Put this filling in peppers and serve.
We like to eat them with fresh cottage cheese, steamed broccoli and french beans (seasoned with garlic and olive oil).
OMG I love garlic!
