BBQ Stuffed Peppers #SundaySupper

*Update: Sorry WordPress lost my final draft and published an old post without photos.

When I first heard the theme for this weekend was BBQ I thought of some of my typical dishes I do on the BBQ and they were all meat based. So I decided a little out side the box thinking was in order. After some digging around for inspiration I found this recipe for vegetarian stuffed peppers on the grill and knew I had to give them a shot. These were so full of fresh flavour and a lot easier to put together then I thought. The only thing I should have made sure was to have the string on hand to help wrap the peppers so we didn’t have as much issues with the peppers trying to fall apart. I can’t wait to try these again.

Heat oil in a medium pan with a lid and fry the pine nuts until lightly toasted, then add the onions and rice and fry until the grains are glossy. Stir in the garlic and cook until aromatic.

Add the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, until the rice is tender. Remove from the heat, cool slightly and stir in the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, gorgonzola and herbs*. Season well and leave to cool. *Sadly I did somehow miss this step as I forgot to buy the herbs
BBQ_Stuffed_Peppers_stuffing
Cut around the stalk from one pepper, remove and set aside. Make one slit down the length of the pepper and open out gently. Remove the seeds and membrane.
Spoon some filling into the pepper cavity, taking care not to overfill.

Learn my from mistakes and make sure you have string to use other wise you will struggle with the stuffing trying to fall out in the BBQ. If you can’t find any it might be easier to wrap the peppers in foil. Take the string and wrap it around the pepper securing the top back to the body. Barbecue the stuffed peppers over moderate heat for 15-20 minutes, turning gently until the peppers are evenly browned.

  20. Much of our health is determined by the way we live our lives, and nutrition choices are
    a huge part of that equation. When our body p – H ( becomes more
    and more acidic it starts to set up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs.
    Not only are they good for you to battle illness,
    they also aid in weight loss.
