Holidays, holidays and it’s already after holidays. The beginning of a new school year always surprises me at least to the extent the road workers are surprised with the onset of winter. My mind’s gone blank, there’s still summer in my heart and the need for unrestricted freedom, adjusting to these new conditions and the pace of work will take me a few weeks for sure. Unfortunately, there’s no buffer zone and paradoxically the beginning of a school year is one of the hottest periods at work. Having a lot on my mind, I don’t always have the occasion to eat something delicious and let alone nutritious. What really improves my mood, are dishes, which not only stimulate my taste buds, but also please my eyes with the way they’re served. That’s why, today I’d like to present you truly delicious stuffed peppers according to the recipe provided by Nun Mary in one of her cookery books – a dish which won my heart a long time ago.
- 4 large peppers
- around 300 g of minced pork meat
- 1 onion
- 1 tomato
- a small jar of tomato concentrate (around 25 g)
- 1/2 glass of rice
- around 50 g of hard cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of dried basil (or a few leaves of fresh basil)
Boil rice in salted boiling water. Grate cheese, next put minced meat into the bowl, mix it with chopped onion and finely diced tomato. Add rice, half of the grated cheese, tomato concentrate and spices.
Cut off the upper part of peppers with green petiole, next remove the core. Fill your vegetables with the earlier prepared stuffing. Roast your peppers at 200°C for around 45 minutes. Take out ready vegetables after they get properly ‘brown’, check whether the meat is soft enough.
Sprinkle the peppers with the rest of cheese before serving your dish.
I hope that this super delicious, yet not very complicated dish will also win your hearts. Bon Appetit!
See you around!
