*6 Organic red peppers cut in half and seeded
*2 Organic zucchini diced
*1 bunch of Organic parsley
*6 Organic basil leaves
*6 cloves of garlic
*1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus 2 tbs.
*1/2 cup of grated Locatelli or Parmesan cheese
*Sea salt & pepper
*2 cups of cooked Organic brown rice or quinoa
*3 Organic eggs
*1 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs
*1 large 13 oz. can of Organic small white or cannellini beans
(This recipe can also be made with 1 lb. of ground chicken, turkey or beef.)
1.) Preheat the oven to 400. Cut the tops off the peppers, remove the seeds and cut in half.
2.) On a cookie sheet drizzle 2 tbs. of olive oil and place in the oven to heat for 5 min.
3.) Add the peppers skin down for 20 minutes, then flip and cook for another 20 min, then remove.
4.) While the peppers are cooking, in a Cuisinart add parsley, basil and garlic and pulse until finely chopped.
5.) Heat the 1/2 cup of olive oil and flash fry the mixture for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Do not burn!
6.) In a mixing bowl whisk the three eggs, add beans (or meat), rice, grated cheese, breadcrumbs, zucchini, garlic parsley & basil mixture, salt & pepper then fold together.
7.) Using an ice cream scooper scoop mixture into each pepper and overstuff. If there is any extra stuffing, scoop it onto the cookie sheet.
8.) Cover with nonstick foil & bake for 30 min in the bottom rack, then uncover and bake on the top rack for an additional 10 minutes until golden brown.
****For meat peppers they need to cook for 45 minutes on the bottom rack, then, then uncover and cook for an additional 15 minutes on the top rack until golden brown.
