Duo Of Stuffed Peppers

What You Need (serves 4)

  • 4 peppers (firm)
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 tomatoes (chopped)
  • 75g (3oz) brown rice, cooked
  • 125g (5oz) Edam or half-fat Cheddar cheese or 80g (3oz) mature Cheddar
  • Pinch of dried mixed herbs
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

How To Make It

  1. Pre-heat oven to 160C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Cut a slice off the top of each pepper; remove centre core and seeds.
  3. Stand peppers upright in an ovenproof dish.
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and cook until soft.
  5. Add the tomatoes, rice, mixed herbs and seasoning and heat through.
  6. Arrange rice mixture in pepper shells.
  7. Top each with grated cheese.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes until peppers are tender.
  9. Serve hot.

Try these variations:

  • Serve with boiled tagliatelle, egg noodles, cous cous or crusty bread and with some salad.
  • Experiment with different stuffings. Replace rice with cous cous or breadcrumbs. Try mozzarella instead of cheddar.
  • Try topping the peppers with a mixture of fresh breadcrumbs, chopped fresh herbs and a little grated parmesan. You can whiz these up together in a blender.
