There’s no arguing the fact that time is flying by, but yet there seems to be so much waiting.
In the Les Mills Body Combat workouts that I’ve grown to love, they call it a “holding pattern” when there’s a set of easy 1-2 minute moves strategically placed between bouts of hardcore punches and kicks in an hour long workout. Even though that hour seems to fly by, I find myself waiting impatiently for those “holding patterns” to be done with.

My daughter’s senior year of high school flew by – but now she finds herself waiting impatiently on orientation and housing appointments so she can check them off her list.

But that’s not all she’s waiting on.
Yesterday evening after we got back from a hike, my daughter found out that one of her dear friends had gotten into a bad skateboarding accident and was admitted to the hospital with a basal skull fracture. She asked me to take her to see her friend, but because of the severity of the trauma, noone was allowed in to see her other than her parents. And, while my daughter got to visit with her friend today, her friend is still severely sedated. So my daughter and other friends and family members are waiting…and praying. If you are still reading this, I am not sure of where you may be in your faith journey – but, if you happen to be a believer like I am, I ask you to please say a prayer for Caroline for the pressure in her brain to subside and for her to be able to breath on her own again soon – with the least amount of waiting.

Stuffed Sweet Peppers with Garam Masala Spiced Grillers

Last night when my daughter and I got back from the hospital, the appetites we worked up after our hike had dissipated. So, I decided to whip something up that was super light as we both had to eat something. I had a pack of MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ in the freezer and decided to saute them up with some onions, chili flakes, garam masala, ginger and parsley and stuff them into some sweet peppers that were about to go bad. My daughter decided to whip up her delicious guacamole to top the stuffed sweet peppers with. By the way, this isn’t a sponsored post – as my daughter is vegetarian, I usually keep a few packs of vegetarian MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ on hand. When we want something quick and versatile, they sure come in handy. And, with whatever spices and veggies or beans we have on hand, they make a good stand in meal or snack or dip or a stuffing like in these Sweet Peppers Stuffed With Garam Masala Spiced Grillers – with very little waiting involved!

  • 1/2 pack MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsps chili flakes
  • 2 tsps dried parsley or 4 tsps fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 sweet peppers


  • Add olive oil to a pan over a medium flame and when warm, add in the onions and stir onions till they become almost translucent (about 7-10 minutes)
  • Add in the ginger at this point, along with the MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ and garam masala and let saute - stirring till MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ are well cooked. I like to get them just a tad bit browned - but that's just my personal preference.
  • Add in the chili flakes and parsley, season with salt and pepper and stuff into sweet peppers and enjoy as is or with your favorite guacamole.

  1. […] There was this one older gentleman who, being so proud of his daughter who was a pediatric neurosurgeon, stood in our driveway, under that HOTlanta sun, and shared with us some of his daughter’s success stories after he heard of my daughter’s friend who is still in the hospital with a traumatic brain injury after a skateboarding accident.

    These look amaaaze! Stuffed peppers are always a hit around my house, and I’m sure these will be no different. Can’t wait to try them out!

  4. praying for your daughters friend! Keep us posted. Hugs friend. And beautiful dish. Love the flavors

  5. These look so good! I will have to make these at our next gathering!

  6. Sending preyers for your daughter’s friend. I hope she will get better soon. Your appetizers look amazing. I love garam masala.

  7. Wow, I’m so sorry to hear about Caroline. I hope she is moving along the path to recovery. I’m sure there are a lot of people (lil Shashi included) pulling for her, and that has to count for something! I’ll keep her in my thoughts and prayers. As far as these stuffed peppers, umm…awesome! We often just toss those stuffed peppers in olive oil and then put ’em on the grill. But I love the idea of cutting them and filling ’em up with a tasty filling. I’ll have to try these sometime soon! Great recipe, my friend! And tell Lil Shashi we’re thinking about her, too. 🙂

    I am totally loving this wonderfully spiced appetizer.Never heard of grillers before. Sorry to hear about Caroline — prayers for her and her family.

  9. Love all the spices and delicious flavours. Have bookmarked this to make as my husband loves vegetarian dishes

  10. I love vegetarian ‘meat’ like this and hubby and I eat pretty regularly. Love the garam masala in there – that adds such a lovely smell and taste, doesn’t it? I could totally see myself eating this as an app or even for dinner with a salad 🙂
    I agree with you that time does fly by super fast and eve more so the older I get. Too fast, in my opinion!
    So sorry to hear about your daughter’s friend, Shashi. I will definitely say a prayer for her and hope she gets well soon!! Hugs! XOXO

  11. Albeit the terrible news about the condition of your daughter’s friend, you managed to whip up a lovely meal here Shashi, all my prayers for Caroline…

  12. I was hoping to hear of how your hike with your daughter went Shashi, and I was very saddened to hear
    instead of the upsetting news of the accident of one of your daughters dear friends. Our thoughts and
    prayers are for Caroline.

    I can fully understand that your appetites would have subsided after your hike on hearing the news too,
    but it’s good that you made the effort to get something to eat, and oh so tasty too.

  13. They look very inviting! What are grillers? Made with pork?
