Roasted Stuffed Peppers

My husband and I have made a commitment to each other to focus on our health – which has included eating healthier home cooked meals, incorporating more vegetables and less processed food. I have always wanted to try stuffed peppers but I was not a fan of the recipes we were finding. So we made up our own (I wanted quinoa but the hubby won and we used rice). I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!

Ingredients

  • two large green peppers
  • 4 slices of provolone 
  • rice (amount varies depending on size of pepper – enough to fill the peppers)
  • mushrooms, tomatoes, onions (amount varies depending on size of pepper – enough to fill the peppers)
  • 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Cut the tops off of the two peppers and remove the seeds.
  • Place a slice of provolone into each green pepper.
    • In a small pan place about 1 tsp of olive oil and on light heat cook the tomatoes, mushrooms and onions until golden brown.
    • Add the rice, mix and continue to cook for roughly one to two minutes.
    • Carefully spoon the rice mixture into the green peppers.

    • Cover each green pepper with a slice of provolone. Place in oven and cook until the top is a golden brown. This will take roughly 40-45 minutes depending on the strength of your oven.

    Enjoy! How do you make your own stuffed peppers?
