Stuffed Bell Peppers

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Made stuffed bell peppers for the first time...not hard at all...I am a big whole foods and garden person so ingredients used came from my herb & vegetable garden, an Iowa farm, and whole foods,

 

I used  4 medium bell peppers (picked fresh from a farm in Iowa and my garden) but u will use 4-7

 

prepare 1/2 cup brown rice

 

browned 1 lb ground turkey breast - during middle of browning process drain any fat then add 1/2 c balsamic vinegar a whole medium onion chopped, 5 gloves of garlic, 1/4 c parsley- (I used 1 bushy curly parsley from my herb garden), .-vegetables will soften as turkey continues to brown;

 

now add 1 jar of tomato sauce (whatever you like) and 1/4 cup ketchup,

 

add 1/8 tsp chili powder,1/2 tsp smoked paparika,1/4 tsp garlic powder & onion powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper- seasonings can vary to your taste, I didn't use salt  but season to your liking), let simmer,

 

after 15 minutes of simmer add rice and 1/2 cup parmesean cheese simmer another 20 minutes

 

now stuff peppers, top each pepper with a spread of ketchup with sprinkle of parmesean cheese on top...

 

 

Bake covered w/foil in a preheated 325 degree oven for 40 min...Take out let sit for 5 minutes before serving...Then enjoy

Sounds like a pretty good recipe. When I make my peppers now I use perl rice it is very small and you do not cook it at all. Here is a step by step photo article I did about it.

I make them every so often.  I use the red, yellow or orange bell peppers since I never was fond of the green ones.

Different take Skyler - looks great.  Cheese peppers (pimentos) are in now and despite being small they are delicious stuffed and baked.  I was talking with a woman at the farm stand who was complaining about how hard they were to clean.  I suggested she get a cheap set of metal measuring spoons and use the appropriate size to scoop out the innards.  She had that "why didn't I think of that" look and we both laughed.

Mike, great idea on the measuring spoons!  Are cheese peppers and cherry peppers the same thing?

Skyler,

I just have to say, I'm impressed with your knife skills to get those stems in half. Nice job.

Thanks, panini.  The peppers were so pretty...I had to keep the stems!  Actually, it was easy since the stems were fairly thick and soft. A sharp knife went right through them.

Hi Queen 7!

I live in Ames. Where are you if you don't mind my asking? 

 

I make peppers pretty much the same but don't care for the sweetness of ketchup. I also use basil, it's a favorite and easy to grow. Sometimes I use italian sausage. (Not Graziano's, I'm not a fan but if you are, go for it!)

 

Skyler- that is pretty. I use all different color peppers too.  I cut them in half on the horizontal so I can get more filling piled in. I never thought of doing it on the vertical. It gives even more surface for crusty browning. Great idea. Stealing that!

@Niko, what is with the slits you cut into the pepper and tomato casings, what does that do for them?  How many cuts do you need?

Hi Queen 7,

Stuffed Bell peppers is one of my favorite dishes and i keeping trying to prepare it in different styles, but my most favorite bell pepper recipe is Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

 

Yellow and red bell peppers are stuffed with a mixture of quinoa, black beans, and vegetables along with a little cheese, then baked and topped with grated cheese before serving.
