Greek stuffed peppers are a great for dealing with the scrumptious meals Greece has to provide with out owning to travel even further then your very own kitchen!
In April I celebrated my 8 12 months anniversary so I considered it would be enjoyment to share a Greek dish (full disclosure I built this at the commencing of April but just now submitting it!). My husband and I had just about a two 12 months engagement just before receiving married on April 12th. We took a mini honeymoon to the Poconos for a several times and then took our honeymoon to Greece a couple of months later on (extremely suggest doing this!) 1 of our favorites issues to do with each other is journey and Greece was our favourite excursion, partly since the foods was so astounding. We are scheduling to go back and take a look at new islands for our 10 calendar year anniversary which I can not feel is practically listed here.
The only poor thing about touring to Greece is that it has been really tough to find comparable Greek food stuff (Greek stuffed grapes leaves, tzatziki, selfmade pita, etcetera.) in the States so we have mainly resorted to building our possess like these Greek stuffed peppers.
Greek stuffed peppers contain two fun components: feta and capers. Have you at any time had capers?? Olives could also be utilized in this dish in area of the capers. Broiling the feta on top for a pair minutes definitely can take this dish to the upcoming level but the cheese could be omitted if essential. If you want a vegetarian or vegan solution- crumbled tempeh will work really properly in stuffed peppers and I’ve created it this way and even fooled meat eaters. Chickpeas would get the job done way too in the Greek stuffed peppers, I would just suggest mashing them up a bit.
