I will be honest and say that I was not so sure about how this recipe would turn out. For one, I am a pretty healthy eater, but
I am not all in and this recipe is purely vegetarian. I also wasn't sure if that horrid acid aftertaste that walnuts sometimes have would leach
all around the dish, but it did not. I didn't taste it at all in fact.
I didn't even know about "walnut meat" until recently after attending a fundraiser that had a raw food component. It was really good, so I got inspired to see where else I might substitute if for ground beef. I had also been wanting to try stuffed peppers/squash in sous vide, so it created a perfect marriage for this dish.
Sous vide is actually pretty great for stuffed peppers as there is no moisture loss and one of its advantages
is the flavors permeate better, with just about anything you cook using this method. I really liked it and have added it to my "repeat" list - the hubs hates
walnuts though, so sadly I can't coax him into this healthy dish.
Depending on how soft you like your peppers, you may want to adjust the cook time. There was still a little crunch left at the 1 hour mark, which was perfect for me!
