green peppers stuffed with broccoli and rice.

Usually stuffed peppers contain some sort of meat, this time a cheesy rice with broccoli filling was used.

Other stuffed pepper recipes:

https://pmetro.wordpress.com/2012/03/25/stuffed-peppers/

https://pmetro.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/stuffed-peppers-2/

Prep the broccoli (and garlic ! of course)

I chose to steam instead of saute.

I usually zap the peppers in the microwave a bit to soften them up.

cut off the top and remove the seeds and ribs (but you knew that!)

as you would prepare some rice, use stock instead water for a kick of flavor.

Prepare a bechamel sauce (butter and flour with milk or for a rich sauce evaporated milk), seasoned as you would prefer.

add the broccoli mixture to the sauce.

mix in the rice

Add some grated cheese, in this case Parmesan to complete the stuffing.

in a baking dish big enough for the peppers, fill the peppers carefully and put them in the dish.

need some bread crumbs ? I chopped up some pretzels for the topping

Into the oven they go ….

run up the broiler after the peppers are hot and bubbly to get the brown crunchy top.

Pizza toast

Instead of preparing another batch of dough, making use of bread already baked.

Lightly toasted white bread that has a small addition of spent stout grains, topped with sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese. Of course a sprinkle of dried hot peppers.

The sausage, green peppers and mushrooms were sautéed, added to the toast, broiled and then add tomatoe and cheese, several  seconds under to broiler to finish.

Sprinkle with grated cheese , garnish with basil.

Roasted eggplant with veggies

What’s the easier way to prepare eggplant, other than grilling it ? just bake it !

Veggies prepped , place on a parchment lined sheet pan… eggplant, sliced, green peppers, julienne carrot and turmeric, sweet onions, dried tomato, salt and pepper. Toss  the veggies with olive oil, and brush the sliced, prepped (salted, pressed and rinsed) eggplant with olive oil.

IMG_8316bake in a hot oven….

Couscous would be good or Bulgar wheat, but raman noodles was quicker for now.IMG_8318

meatball sandwich

Recently, I cooked up a batch of tomato sauce, then later made a small batch of meatballs separately. Either I have small amount of pasta with sauce and meatballs, or I use the sauce  in different recipes.

The tomato sauce is made with a Mirpoix  base to incorporate some veggies into the mix. One can diced tomatoes, one can crushed tomatoes, one can tomato soup, one can tomato paste. Add red wine and stock. Similar to a previous post  Meat Balls and Tomato Sauce.

Slice some homemade or high quality bread and place in a 400 degree oven. A few mushrooms rescued from the fridge with olive oil in another tray and place in the oven.

Slice the meatballs, or some people mash them, I like them chunky. I also added some prepared green peppers.

(To prepare the green peppers, on a gas stove, works best, directly over the burner, char the exterior of the peppers to blacken, over the open flame. Place the charred peppers directly in a brown paper bag or enclosed container. Continue with each pepper till completed and go find something to do as the peppers cool. Remove the peppers from the bag. Cut out the stems and scrape the blackened charred skin from the peppers, severing the peppers into quarters and scrape the interior of ribs and seeds. You now have peppers steaks, so to speak. Containerize with olive oil for use. Don’t forget the classic pepper and egg sandwich sandwich! The peppers are good even fried in olive oil as a side dish.)

When the mushrooms are cooked and the bread crusty, remove from the oven. Add a layer of tomato sauce, IMG_8276Then the meatballs, green peppers, sauce  and mushrooms. Top with cheese(s).

Return to the oven and heat and or broil you desired doneness.
