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/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.

1/4 cup sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

Scant 1 cup sour dough starter

The sweetness of the blueberries stands  out from the slight sourness of the cornbread.

tomato – basil custard (quiche)

real men don’t eat quiche, so custard seems better…..

Fresh tomato and basil from the garden narrowed down this recipe.
But any event, it took a bit of time to make a crust the egg mixture was easy and the result was good.
From:
http://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/food-dining/2014/09/02/recipe-for-tomato-basil-quiche/FfpVGKTRD2j0bB9ppuV6UN/story.html?p1=Article_Related_Box_Article_More

for the PASTRY:

1½ cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cut up
¼ cup ice water mixed with 1 teaspoon vinegar
Extra flour (for sprinkling)
Add sliced butter to the dry ingredients and with a hand held pastry blender, cut in the butter to get a crumbly mixture. Add the ice water mixture and pull together.
form into a ball , slightly flatten and refrigerate for about 20 minutes while you get the rest of the ingredients together and 9 inch deep dish pie pan.

FILLING

4 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch of ground nutmeg
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup milk
whisk the above together and set aside.
and prep ready :
1 cup grated smoked or plain mozzarella
2 tomatoes, sliced ¼-inch thick
½ cup torn fresh basil leaves

Back to the pastry, roll it out to about 12 inches diameter and place in the pie pan. Refrigerate again for 20 minutes. I put a stockpot that fit  in the pie pan to hold down the crust while baking. Bake for about 12 minutes, remove the weight, the stockpot, and finish baking another 10 minutes or so, cool.
IMG_6166The recipe wasn’t specific but I guessed 1/2 the  cheese goes in the bottom of the crust.

followed by the sliced tomato

IMG_6168

Then the torn basilIMG_6169gently pour in the custard

IMG_6170 IMG_6171

top with the rest of the cheese. Some of the mixture poured over the crust, should have rolled it out bigger to go up the side of the pie plate.

IMG_6172Bake at 375 for about an hour or less, let it puff up and brown.

cool slightly serve hot or cold.

Diane wanted the first piece.

The crust was a bit overdone, definitely not soggy ! fresh tomato and basil was refreshing !

Lamb, onion and garlic

Preheat the skillet under broiler, have good potholders available.

Start some rice cooking.

basic recipe with just salt and pepper seasonings.

IMG_5555Broiled Valdalia onions

IMG_5556Remove and reserve the onions, a boneless leg of lamb sliced into chunks, tossed with olive oil and salt and pepper added to the pan then  back under the broiler.

IMG_5559add some smashed garlic later so the garlic doesn’t over cook. Continue to broil.

IMG_5560Add the onions back into the skillet just before the lamb is done to your preference.

IMG_5558half and steam up some Brussels sprouts.

IMG_5557About a tablespoon of each butter and flour, stir till melted, splash in some milk, heat and stir, add a slice of cheese. Done.

IMG_5561Rice is ready, serve

IMG_5562Plate it up, smoothie of grapes, raspberries,and banana , a touch of wine for liquid to blend.

This recipe can be cooked again and spiced up, I wanted to taste the lamb without many seasonings.
