Stuffed peppers

DSC_1184DSC_1181

I had this meal already twice this month. All you need is a few peppers. With the filling you can go as crazy as you wish- you can stuff them only with meat or make a vegetarian option with some beans. Instead of rice you can use barley or cous cous. Personaly I like them the way I presented (maybe with a bit of cheddar melted on the top and spalsh of tomato ketchup ;p). Also the meal doesn’t involve much of the kitchen skills so everyone can make it and enjoy something new for a dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 3 large pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry rice
  • 200 g mince meat (chicken or beef)
  • can of tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • few cherry tomatoes or 1 big tomato
  • salt and pepper, basil
