Stuffed sweet red peppers September 17, 2014

Istuffed peppers found this recipe here and it fit all my needs: I needed to pair something with easy breezy gyoza (’cause if this would have been challenging, what would be the point?) and I had a lot of tomatoes, peppers and some feta I wanted to use up.  The whole family loved it, and it took about 5 minutes to throw together…

Ingredients

2 large, long red peppers
200 g (6½oz) cherry tomatoes
125 g (4oz) feta cheese, crumbled
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
10 basil leaves, chopped (I didn’t have fresh, so I used dried and it was great)
1-2 t olive oil
2 t balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper, to taste
3-4 t fresh breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
Olive oil, to serve
Extra basil leaves, to garnish

Heat the oven to 400°. Halve the peppers lengthways and remove the seeds. Halve the tomatoes and put in a bowl with the feta, garlic, basil, oil and vinegar. Mix. Season with salt and pepper. Place the mixture in equal portions in each of the pepper halves and then sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Throw the peppers on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they have softened and the tops are golden. Drizzle with oil, if desired, garnish with a few basil leaves and chow down.  Cheers! Ren
