Stuffed Red Peppers

I snagged a couple of organic peppers at the supermarket a little while ago, and they needed using up quickly. I also had some leftover rice in my fridge, and so the following creation was born!

Stuffed Red Peppers

Ingredients:

  • Red pepper, cut in half
  • One cup of cooked rice per red pepper half
  • Tomato, diced
  • Half an onion, diced
  • Half a chilli, finely chopped
  • Garlic clove, grated
  • Mozarella ball, diced
  • Seasoning of choice (I used black pepper to taste, about a tsp dried coriander/cilantro, pinch of paprika and dried chilli flakes)

    Mix all the ingredients together apart from the red pepper halves. Spoon into the red pepper halves, and pop into a preheated oven for about 20-30 minutes.

    These were delicious, and so quick and simple to throw together! I loved the addition of mozarella but you could omit it for a vegan version.

    What are you favourite quick and simple but still healthy recipes to put together when you're short of time or don't feel like spending much time cooking?

    Have a good weekend!
