Stuffed Peppers

Yet another favorite dish of my family. Especially in the cold weather, this is one of the comfort foods.  It is a wholesome meal on its own. you can always serve this with your favorite salad or soup. But we don’t need anything else. Just 2-3 peppers per person, and we are set.

Here’s how I made it:

Stuffed Peppers
3 large peppers, different colors
1 cup prepared Nutrela grounds
1 cup prepared rice
1 medium onion
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp red chili powder
½ tbsp. dried oregano
2-3 tbsp oil
¼ cup canned black beans, drained
Grated Cheddar cheese, as required
Salsa, sour cream (Optional)

How to:
Heat up oil in a sauce pan.
Sauté onion and garlic until onion is soft.
Add all the spices and sauté on medium heat until fragrant, for about 2 minutes.
Now add soaked Nutrela grounds, black beans and cook for about 10 minutes.
Add rice, mix.
Pre heat oven to 400° F.
Halve the peppers, remove seeds and core.
Place on a greased baking sheet, cut side up.
Stuff with prepared mixture.
Top with cheese.
Bake for about 20 minutes until peppers are tender, yet firm to touch.
Serve with salsa, sour cream.
