Your rating: None
Baked Stuffed Peppers is a great, tasty recipe. Perfect for a light lunch or side dish with a main meal. Also suitable for vegetarians. This recipe will serve 4 people.
What you'll need: 
4 large firm red peppers
1 tbsp oil
1 large onion, (finely chopped)
2 cloves of garlic, (finely chopped)
4 large mushrooms, (chopped)
Salt & Pepper for seasoning
2 tbsp of parmesan cheese, (grated)
2oz pre-cooked rice, of any kind, wild rice, basmati or brown rice, all taste good.
Pre-heat the oven to Gas 4. First, cook the rice of your choice, following the instructions on the packet. When cooked, drain and set to one side.
Wash the peppers, and slice off the top of each pepper with a sharp knife. Put to one side. Take out the seeds, being careful not to cut the pepper itself.
Heat the oil and fry the onions and the garlic for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms, and the rice to the pan and season. Mix together well.
Fill each pepper with the mixture, squashing down with a spoon. Sprinkle each pepper with the grated parmesan cheese and replace the tops.
Place in a greased baking dish, and bake for 30-40 minutes.
These baked peppers taste juicy and delicious. A great addition to any meal, or on their own.
For variation, youu could add whatever you like to the filling, for instance, ham, or chorizo would taste good for meat lovers.
