Ingredients for Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers

  • Large Green Peppers, 4
  • Olive Oil, 2 teaspoons
  • Salt 1 gram
  • Pepper 1 gram
  • Vegetable Oil, 74 mL
  • Onion, 2 3/5 cups
  • Mushroom, 1 1/2 cups
  • Carrot, 2 3/4 cups
  • Garlic, 125 grams
  • Modern Crumble, 300 grams
  • Ground Cumin, 1 teaspoon
  • Dry Thyme, 3 teaspoons
  • Red Wine, 60 grams
  • Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
  • Pepper, 1 teaspoon
  • Cooked Rice 400 grams
  • Heirloom Balsamic Drizzle, 65 mL

Instructions

  • Start by preheating your oven to 400˚F and place a large pan on medium to high heat.
  • Cut the tops off the Green peppers and set them aside. Use your hands to hollow out the pepper.
  • Toss the hollowed peppers with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place on a sheet pan in the oven for 10 min.
  • While the peppers are roasting dice your vegetables to a quarter-inch thickness and mince the garlic.
  • In the preheated pan start pour in your canola oil and then sautee the onion.
  • Once the onion edges begin to brown, add mushrooms and carrots. Sautee for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and crumble at the same time and cook until the crumble is crispy.
  • Add the thyme, cumin, salt, and pepper and toss to evenly distribute.
  • Pour in your red wine and reduce until almost no moisture remains.
  • The roasted peppers should have come out of the oven by now and be slightly softer.
  • Mix the rice with the sauteed veg mix and combine. Use a spoon to stuff each pepper.
  • Press down with the spoon to maximize the amount of stuffing in each pepper.
  • Turn the oven down to 350˚F. Place the stuffed peppers back on the sheet pan spaced out.
  • Cover the tops of each with aluminum foil to prevent the stuffing from drying out.
  • Drizzle the balsamic on a plate and place one finished pepper upright, cut the other in half and lay flat.
