(Get) Stuffed Peppers

Wah Gwannnn!

Ere me now! My (Get) Stuffed Peppers recipe is below! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I made both vegi and meat options, to make the vegi I put all the ingredients for the stuffing (swapping the beef for quorn mince) and cooked until ready. Super easy supper.

Ingredients                                                                         Ready in 40 Minutes(ish)   Serves 3


  1. 250G Beef Mince or Quorn Mince
  2. 3 Peppers, ‘lids’ cut off, deseeded and kept.
  3. 60g Sugar Snap Peas, chopped roughly
  4. 10g Chive, chopped
  5. 150g Courgette, chopped
  6. 15g Fresh Basil, chopped
  7. 100g Mushrooms, sliced
  8. 1 Medium Onion, sliced
  9. 110g Merchant Grant Quinoa, Grains, Red Rice Mix
  10. 1 OXO Cube
  11. 10ml Liquid Smoke
  12. Sprinkling of Cayenne Pepper
  13. 2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  14. 150G Feta Cheese
  15. 2tsp Red Pesto
  16. Large Pinch of Thyme
  17. 1tsp Coconut Oil
  18. Salt to taste
  19. Olive Oil

 

ingredients1

Prepare vegetables as stated above (the most formal thing I’ve ever written)

Place a frying pan on a hot heat and add 1tsp of coconut oil and the chopped garlic to it, fry for 1 minute.

 

 

Next add the mince meat and an OXO cube. I like to gently crush the OXO cube in the foil then sprinkle it over what ever I’m cooking – goodbye lumps of stock cube!

Once the meat starts to brown add in the chopped onion and courgette. When the onion softens add the basil, mushrooms, chives and sugar snap peas.

 

 

 

When everything is starting to get softer (about 4 or 5 minutes with occasional stirring) poor in the liquid smoke, add a large pinch of thyme, and sprinkle cayenne pepper over to taste.

Season with salt to personal preference.

lids

Spoon the Mixture into the deseeded peppers, adding chunks of feta cheese whenever you feel like it. Place in a deep baking tray, it helps to prop them up against the sides. Add the lids on top of each pepper – if you’re feeling particularly rebellious today you could mismatch the lids and have multi-coloured masterpieces.

Carefully place in the oven at 180c and bake for 10 minutes.

Take out the oven, serve and enjoy.potpeppers
