Yum! I love these, and make them about 3 times each month! My vegetarian husband loves these as well. What's great about this recipe is how much you can adapt the recipe. I like to make these peppers the night after making a stir fry, to use up extra cooked rice. I have also stuffed the peppers with leftover risotto from the previous night's dinner. I find the salt in the feta is plenty, so I don't add any extra. These are great to use up any vegetables you have on hand (I have thrown in corn, broccoli, mushrooms, etc.), and I love to use fresh basil in these. Also, regular onions are fine if you don't have green onions on hand.
This was good, but not great. I added some turkey mince, which I really think it needed. I think I used a bit too much rice and not enough tomatoes. I will use an extra tomato next time since it turned out a little dry and I like mine a little more "saucy"
I've come back to edit this with more essential changes: one small can diced tomatoes, two fresh tomatoes, handful of mozzarella, frozen corn. Also the pepper only need about 20 min roasting time and stand them upright... I had mine upside down and they wilted and it was a pain to fill them. This is GOOD and the way I make it can stuff over half a dozen peppers!
Great Recipe! I made a few changes. I added ground beef, fresh garlic, and minced yellow onion. I also used whole peppers. A great tip for making sure your whole peppers don't fall over in the oven is to place them sitting in a muffin pan. Works great! This was the easiest and most delcious stuffed pepper recipe I have made! Thank you!
So Yummmy! I roasted red, yellow and green peppers for 15 minutes. I sauteed onion,garlic, and fresh basil, parsley and chives for 5 min then added small cut up pieces of chicken breasts. Let that sautee for 15 min also adding in cut up pieces of zucchini, brocolli, carrot, and 2 tomatoes. Added the feta and stuffed my pepps with this and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese and cooked for the extra five minutes. (I did season rice mixture w/ sea salt, pepper, and paprika for some added spice) ABSOLUTELY delicious. Great base recipe to play with.
Colorful and tasty departure from your ordinary side dish. I used red, orange, yellow and green peppers, which made this particularly pretty and bright. I coated them lightly with olive oil and sprinkled them with sea salt and freshly ground pepper before roasting them for just 20 minutes, which was perfect. I cooked the arborio rice in chicken broth and a little butter, and added fresh minced garlic to the sauteed onions and herbs. Once mixed altogether with the chopped tomatoes, it looked like it could use a little color, so I threw in a handful of fresh, minced parsley. As for the feta, since hubs can't stand it I subbed some freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano instead (which he also doesn't like, but so be it). At this point I just put them back in the turned off oven until I got the rest of dinner plated and it worked out well. To finish, I gave them a light sprinkle of truffle sea salt. While not a masterpiece, it still was a healthy, tasty and pretty alternative to the routine vegetable/starch side dishes.
Love, love, love this recipe! I did make a few slight alterations. I cooked up fresh garlic with red onions, instead of green. I use fresh basil, when I have it. I ended up using a brown, medium grain rice since I did not have Arborio. To add extra moisture to the rice, I used a little vegetable broth. I also used a can of diced tomatoes, drained, in replace of the fresh tomato, which I also did not have at the time. I have made this at home many times, it is one of my 8 year old daughter's favorites!
Absolutely amazing!!! I made this for a dinner party of ten people and everybody loved it. I did change it a little. I used red peppers instead of green, Greek seasoning instead of Italian and added spinach to the filling. Definitely a keeper.
These were fantastic. I cut the salt in half and rubbed olive oil on the insides and outsides of the peppers before roasting.
