Aegean Stuffed Peppers By Gokhan From Product Group

 Practically, it is baked dish with pre-cooking. The mixture of beautiful stuffing and fresh peppers creating an amazing vegetarian dish. Stuffing peppers has been a method of cooking in both sides of the Aegean sea for ages. you can make it either with adding minced meat in the mixture or as a vegetarian option. Different nuts and herbs can be used in the stuffing mixture with long grain rice. Actually, using feta cheese in the mixture is more common in Greece. In Turkey, we make it without feta and enjoy it with yogurt instead. In this version of the recipe; I am using roasted pistachios to give it a nutty texture, dill and mint for freshness and beautiful smell. Finally, give it a kick with feta cheese. Using feta in the dish makes the herbs react with the cheese in an interesting and delicious way.

Ingredients:

2 vine tomatoes,

VEG026: 6 large peppers any colour,

100g shelled pistachios,

3 small or 2 large onions,

OIL062: Olive oil,

3 table spoons of Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

1 tea spoon of Tabasco,

Sea salt and ground black pepper,
