Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a versatile dish and can be prepared in countless variations. My recipe focuses on combinations of healthy ingredients without meat. 

So let your imagination roam freely and create your own favorite combinations. Although the main ingredient apart from the bell peppers are frozen millie kernels this dish is as well great to use some left overs.

Ingredients
for 
Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers in a pan
  • 2 tbs. Butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 fresh bell peppers, halved and deseeded
  • 3 cups of millie kernels, drained of excess water
  • 1 boiled potato, meshed
  • Some feta cheese
  • Some olives
  • 1 cayenne chili pepper, sliced fine, or if you have use 2 tsp. of our homemade red masala paste
  • 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 1 heaped tsp. origanum
  • 1 tsp. Salt, or to taste



Directions

  • Add butter or olive oil to a frying pan and switch the stove plate on to medium heat
  • Once the butter has melted add garlic, chili and milli kernels, cover with lid and let it cook for 5 minutes
  • Remove the lid after the time and you will probably still find some extra moisture that has come out of the millie's, add a little salt, stir and let the millie's cook uncovered for another 5 minutes
  • Switch of stove and remove pan from heat
  • Stuff some of the peppers with millie kernel mixture
  • Stuff other pepper about 3/4 with the millie kernels and top them up with mashed potato and some crumbled feta cheese. 
  • Sprinkle a little olive oil over each of the stuffed peppers
  • Cover each of them with a few olives (optional)
  • Place them on a greased baking tray and bake them (top and bottom heat) in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius / 392 Fahrenheit for about 30 to 35 minutes, keep an eye on the surface of the stuffed fruits once they become golden brown they should be done

Remove from the oven and serve them hot
