Apparently stuffed peppers have got less calories than a tic-tac. I don’t know if it’s true but I love them. They are tasty. And it’s always better to stuff peppers then get stuffed.
So whenever you feel like stuffing your face or simply kicking the stuffing out of someone, stuff peppers instead. Let the force be with you…
brown rice (half a cup)
100 grams of mushrooms
100 grams of green peas (fresh or from a tin)
herbes de provence (or fresh basil, oregano and thyme)
salt and pepper
100 – 150 grams of cheddar cheese
1. Cook rice.
2. Chop mushrooms, fry them in olive oil. Add chopped courgette, add herbs, salt and pepper. Add fresh green peas, if you are using tinned peas, wait till courgettes are soft.
3. Halve the peppers. Mix vegetables with rice and stuff the peppers. Grate cheese and sprinkle it on top of the peppers.
4. Bake in the oven (180 C) till peppers are soft and the cheese has melted.
5. Serve with salad and roasted potatoes.
