Stuffed peppers are also super easy to make. Just stir-fry some meat and veggies together with some seasonings, throw ’em in your peppers, and let the oven finish them off! This is a recipe that may look difficult as an end result but it really takes no extra effort or appliances to accomplish.
These stuffed peppers were inspired by Greek cuisine – hence the ground lamb (although feel free to use any type of ground meat you prefer or have on hand). I stuck with the Greek theme by throwing in a banana pepper and some Mediterranean herbs and spices.
Greek By Design
If you’re a fan of Greek food, you’ll love this recipe. If you’re not very familiar with Greek dishes, this could be the perfect opportunity for you give it a go.
Greek cuisine tends to be full of herbs and spices that contribute unique flavors to the food, making the dishes both healthy and delicious.
Pepper Stuffed Peppers
You may think the bell peppers provide all the pepper you need for one recipe, but I disagree.
I love the little kick this recipe gets from the addition of a banana pepper.
I just used one, and banana peppers are low on the Scoville scale, so it the outcome is not super spicy. Just enough to make your taste buds sit up and go “hello there!”
Prepare Your Side
Now, just because this recipe is full of veggies, doesn’t mean it’s enough to fill your quota of vegetables for the day.
Remember, the more the better, so be sure to serve these stuffed peppers with a side salad or some Herbed Celery Root Puree (which is what you see in the photos).
