A vegetarian stuffed pepper recipe which can be easily modified.

Ingredients for Stuffed Peppers:

  • 4 large green peppers
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 ozs (112g) long-grain rice, cooked
  • 8 ozs (225g) tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 sprigs of parsley, chopped finely
  • 4 ozs cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 ozs (56g) butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method for Stuffed Peppers:

  • Cut a slice off the top of each pepper, remove centre core and seeds.
  • Brush each pepper on the outside with the olive oil and then stand the peppers upright in an oven-proof dish.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the chopped onion gently. Add the tomatoes, rice, parsley, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and combine.
  • Pile the mixture into the pepper shells.
  • Top each pepper with grated cheese.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes in a pre-heated oven at Gas Mark 4 (350°F/180°C) until the peppers are tender. Serve hot.

Serves 4

Note: Chopped mushrooms can replace some of the tomatoes in the mixture and the addition of a beaten egg will give a firmer filling.

  12. Seen this Stuffed Pepper for years even Encore Family Dinners make them. But now that we don’t eat meat my boyfriend and I I had to search out and make them myself. I only changed the tomatoes to a fired eggplant and sauce mix. But keep everything the same. I did boil my peppers for 5 mins to remove all the oils from them that they get in the shipping to the market. But OMG. I add cheese in the mix as well on top. It’s to die for. Thank you for showing how easy it really is. Gene from DottsFamilyJewelry

    Hey… The recipe is amazing thanks. One thing i would add though is a bit of tumeric to the rice as it gives it more colour and flavour. Thanks again for the recipe 🙂

  16. jason says:

    I’ve just made this for my family and it was excellent .
    Next time I think I’ll put the cheese and rice in layers.

    @ Hannah if you add the beaten egg the filling should stay in, I made it for my children and they ate it all up!
