Recipe

Use rice and herbs as the stuffing in place of meat.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cooking time: 1¼ Hrs

Ingredients

  • 4 red bell peppers
  • ½ cup basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 tsp chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2/3 cup vegetable stock or water
  • Freshly grated Parmesan, for serving

Directions

 

1. Cut the top off each pepper. Scoop out the seeds. Boil the rice in salted water for about 20 minutes, or until tender, then drain. Stir the herbs and lemon juice into the rice and season with salt and pepper.

2. Preheat the oven 325°F (160°C). Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the peppers, and cook for 2–3 minutes. Drain well and stand the peppers in an oiled baking dish.

3. Fill each pepper with the rice mixture. Place the tops on and drizzle with oil. Pour the stock into the dish. Cover with foil, and bake for 1 hour, or until tender. Serve hot, with the cheese on the side.
