Stuffed Green Peppers - Could Be #Vegetarian

We fell off the turnip wagon. A friend of a friend offered us half a pastured pig, and we and two other friends split it. Lots of sausage. Lots and lots of sausage.

The first thing Charlie thought of was stuffed green peppers. We usually have these vegetarian, and you can, too.

Stuffed Green Peppers

  • olive oil
  • green peppers, cored and halved
  • onions, chopped
  • cooked sausage or hamburger (or veggie crumbles or nothing remotely meat-like)
  • (if you don't use spiced sausage, you want to use chili powder and cumin)
  • onion
  • cooked rice
  • tomato sauce
  • shredded cheddar cheese
Oil the peppers and put them into a 350F oven to soften and cook a little. Meanwhile, cook the sausage and onion or spices and onion. Add the rice and tomato sauce and some of the cheese. Remove the pepper halves and put them into an oiled dish or dishes. Stuff with the stuffing. Bake at 350F for about half an hour. Sprinkle with more cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and (if you like it the way we do) browned.

The green stuff on the side is roasted broccoli: Spray the broccoli with oil spray and sprinkle with salt. Put it in the oven alongside the pepper dish. Crispy and delicious!

I love the concept of pork filled vegetarian stuffed peppers.
