A definite new Crave favourite, these amazing stuffed peppers are quick, easy & absolutely delicious. Here is what you will need:
3 x halved peppers
Half pack of smoked bacon lardons
Half an onion finely chopped
1 mushroom finely chopped
1 heaped tablespoon quark
1 heaped tablespoon marinade
2 tablespoons cooked wholegrain rice
Sour cream (optional)
Chopped chives (optional)
Heat the oven to 220 degrees then halve the peppers, remove the seeds then place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a non stick frying pan on medium & add the lardons & cook for a few minutes then add the onion cooking for a further 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients except the sour cream & chives, mix well then take off the heat.
When the peppers are slightly charred, leaving the oven on, remove the peppers from the oven & rest for a few minutes to release the steam (tip out any moisture from the pepper using tongs as they will be very hot).
Spoon the mixture into each pepper then return to the oven for a further 20 minutes.
To serve, spoon a teaspoon of quark or sour cream on top with some chopped chives then devour!
