Cut off peppers' tops and carve out the stems. Save the tops. Remove the seeds inside peppers. Soak peppers and tops in a pan with water and salt for 10 minutes. After that, put them in boiling water for 1 minute. Save.

In a small pan, put water,garlic, onion and a dash of black pepper. Cook until the onion is slightly brown. Add tomato and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionaly. Add Gimme Lean and cook for 2 minutes, stirring very well so that the onion will mix uniformly. Add the egg, if you like, and cook for another 7 minutes or so, until "pretend meat" is cooked to your taste. Remember to stir frequently so that the "pretend meat" will be cooked evenly and won't stick to the bottom of the pan. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and close the tops with toothpicks. Put in the oven at 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes to warm up the peppers. (Watch closely so that you don't burn the inside!) Serve. (be careful because the inside is hot) NOTE: Remember to remove toothpicks before you eat! :-) NOTE2:If you can't find colored peppers, it's ok to use only green peppers.
