Stuffed peppers

Makes six.


  • 6 peppers. (Bell pepper/capsicum)
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery, finely chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 6 mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 1 glass dry white wine
  • 3 litres veg stock
  • 1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped oregano
  • 1 chopped chilli pepper (Optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 190°C (=375F).
  • Cut the tops off six peppers. Cut out seeds and white inner pith.
  • Sprinkle with 1 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast upside down for 10 mins. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, add remaining olive oil to a large, medium heated, frying pan, add finely chopped onion, celery, mushrooms and crushed garlic. Stir fry until onion softened.
  • Add chopped chilli and tomatoes and cook for further three minutes until tomatoes begin to break down.
  • Add rice and stir until all grains are well coated.
  • Add white wine and allow to boil for two minutes to evaporate alcohol.
  • Stir in tomato puree and half the stock. Add herbs and reduce heat to simmer.
  • As stock reduces, top up with remaining stock (reserving a cup) until rice has absorbed most of the liquid and is almost cooked through. Season to taste.
  • Remove from heat and scoop into cooked peppers.
  • Place stuffed peppers into an ovenproof dish and put pepper tops on. Season outside of peppers.
  • Pour the remaining cup of stock into the base of the dish and return to the oven for 20- 25 minutes. Peppers should be softened and have a visible charring to skin.
  • Remove and serve with a Greek salad or sliced meats.

Also delicious cold as a lunchtime treat.
