Peppery Addiction

04 Feb

When there are folks in the blogosphere who make their hatred towards this green one public, can I, the bell-pepper addict keep quiet? Armed with an awesome Italian stuffed bell-pepper, here I am shouting from the rooftop, to my favorite one’s rescue. Look at these succulent green peppers – how can one not like them? I wonder…

Stuffed Pepper

I followed the recipe verbatim, a very simple one, perfect even for a weekday dinner. The only change I did was use Mozzarella instead of Pecorino Romano, as I had it handy and also there is this minor issue of K not eating any other cheese but Mozzarella. Try it, all you pepper-haters and let me know if you have a change of heart!

PS: I substituted veggie broth for chicken broth.  Thanks for pointing that out, Laksh & Anamika.

    These look so good! Was the mint a strong flavor? Not sure how my hubby would go for that if it’s strong. Do you think Basil would change the overall flavor too much?

    Just found your blog today! I have more reading to do!

    Actually I couldn’t feel the mint at all and it gave a nice subtle flavor to the dish. That said, I think Basil or even Parsley would be a nice replacement. You might want go a little easy on Basil, if you use it. – A-kay

    Sure looks and sounds delicious – As much as a cheese lover that i was, I have tried to stay away from it recently after “discovering” how Rennet is acquired. Even cheeses called “Organic” have Rennet in them. There is by far only one variety in Whole foods that specifically says “not from Animal Rennet”

    Stick to paneer 🙂 with the hope that store bought paneer in the US does not have Rennet!!

    Yes – I have heard all about rennet too. Thankfully fresh cheese doesn’t contain rennet which is where Mozzarella comes to our rescue 🙂 – A-kay

    The recipe uses chicken broth. Are you a vegetarian?
    If yes,did you substitute with veg broth?

    Yes, I did use the veggie broth. Fixed the post now – thanks for pointing that out 🙂 – A-kay

    Hats off to both of u (A & K)—theres a saying in Tamil which goes………AAll paadi aadai paadi.Both of u complement each other

    the only difficulty in these stuffed veggies(bell pepper or tomatoes or whatever)is the logistics involved in consumung them!!!!!!They too big ;when u cut them to pieces to eat,it loses its wholesomeness in the taste.

    Thanks mami 🙂 They sure look very good and the taste can get a little compromised as you said. I could taste the bell pepper flavor in the filling, so I guess prolonged cooking is the key for stuffed veggies. – A-kay
