Stuffed Peppers – Easy And Light Dinner

Autumn is a beautiful season. It is colourful, a little bit chiller than during the previous month, but there is still enough sunshine, and the market is full with fresh fruit and vegetables, traditionally associated with this time of the year.

I like preparing and serving peppers. You can find them in different colours – red, yellow, green, orange, which means the dish you make would be not only delicious, but also very nice to look at.

Today I am presenting a recipe for stuffed peppers – one easy recipe suitable for the whole family. Enjoy it as a vegetarian main dish with a nice salad or as a side dish to accompany the roast you’ve prepared.

Stuffed and baked peppers are very delicious – sweet and smoky, with the added deliciousness from the cheese, this meal would be hard to ignore when the aromas from the cooking fill up the room.

Try it yourself!

    Wow this is an amazing simple recipe to follow, how I wish you can show it either in video or by step by step picture guide. I am not that talented when it involved something to do in the kitchen.

    May I know, can I use other type of cheese? I have parmesan and mozzarella in my fridge, no cheddar, is there any particular reason why you use cheddar? If I can use whatever in my fridge it will be great,

    Thanks

      Hi Habil, thank you for your comments. I would try adding more pictures next time I make this recipe.

      You can use both the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses (mix them) when preparing this recipe, but use less mayonnaise (if any) because mozzarella cheese is really creamy. I’ve used cheddar mainly because my kids love the cheese and because it gives a creamy salty taste to the meal.

      Hope you like the dish.

      All the best,

      Ellie

    This sounds like a yummy way to prepare bell peppers! I have seen a few stuffed bell pepper recipes, but didnt want to invest the time or effort due to the fact that I would probably be the only one to eat it in my house (my 3 small kids wont touch them, and my husband acts like a child with certain foods haha.) This sounds simple enough to prep for myself to enjoy! Thanks!

      Hi Martina. I understand what you mean when you say your kids won’t eat peppers, but my fussy 3-year old eater just loves it when I prepare stuffed peppers, especiallynif there is cheese there ascwell. Try it and you might be surprised. If not, you would have a light lunch for yourself readybfor the next day.

      All the best
