Stuffed Peppers...

I have always wanted to make stuffed peppers and am not sure why I hadn't already done so. So when I came across this recipe I knew it was time. 
SO GOOD!
And so easy, you have got to try it.

{Here is how mind turned out}

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 2 green bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Place the peppers cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until tender and skin starts to brown.
  4. While the peppers are roasting, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato, and cook for 5 minutes. Spoon in the cooked rice, and stir until heated through. Remove from heat, mix in the feta cheese, and spoon the mixture into the pepper halves.
  5. Return to the oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Jenni, the no meat diet has been a bit of a struggle lately. Although I have had no red meat, I have had a bit of chicken. I'm not stressing over it. Just taking it a day at a time. =) Thanks for asking.

Hi Jesse! Yum! I like to stuff thinly sliced prosciutto into those round red and green cherry peppers, and top off with a thick slice of mozzerella, cut in a circle! Love your blog (I love DIY), I'm a new follower! Cheers!
