Cooking stuffed peppers

 

Experiment.

I used,

4 yellow bell peppers with their tops cut off and de-seeded.

Small amount of lean minced beef (I could have used quorn mince). 600 grams.

1 corgette finely chopped. (after I cooked this I suggest 1/2 instead)

8 baby corn cobs, finely chopped. (after trying this use 4)

1 small onion, finely chopped.

The tops of the yellow peppers, finely chopped.

1 small jar of Bolognese sauce.

A cup of brown rice. (1/2 a cup instead)

Garlic olive oil (or 3 garlic cloves and ordinary olive oil)

Grated cheese

Salt and pepper to taste.

Method,

Fry off the mince and vegetables till softened and cooked.

Boil the rice in water until aldente  (cooked but still a bit hard)

Once the meat and veg are cooked add the bolognese sauce and the brown rice.

Spoon the mix into the peppers. Cook them in a gas mark 6 (medium hot) oven for 15 minutes then check and if not cooked put them back in for 5 minutes.

Eat …

Fingers crossed.

Result: very tasty but a bit too much for two! Use less brown rice, half a courgette (zucchini) and 4 baby corn instead. (I’ve altered the amounts in the recipe) the original amounts would do for 3 or 4 people. 20190213_221418
