When I first made Stuffed Green Peppers I made them with ground beef and Minute Rice.
Over the years I have used brown rice, pasta or barley and ground veal, turkey or sausage.
Some had tomato sauce and cheese; some had water chestnuts and soy sauce.
That’s my favorite thing about stuffing vegetables – anything (almost) works.
These are made with quinoa- a bit more interesting and adds a meatier texture to the finished peppers.

When I was in the US the daily high temperature ranged from 90F (32C) when I arrived to 50F (10C) when I left.
I was ready to come home and get into fall cooking.
But it’s been hot and sunny every day. We’re having the summer we missed in July and August.
And I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.
Barbecued chicken for dinner tonight.
And I managed to find a few more green beans
Other than the fact that I’m finding big spiders every day and getting mysterious bites like I always do in the fall, I could pretend it’s summer.
Did I mention that mon mari didn’t see a single spider anywhere in the house while I was gone?
And he’s had to dispose of one every day for me since I’ve been back?

I’m thinking mon mari just didn’t notice them, but I’m pretty sure they must have still been there.
Your recipe looks wonderful, but I no longer eat stuffed peppers. Or any pepper. Something in the enzymes in the peppers just don’t agree with me anymore. 🙁 However, I do make just the stuffing and eat that as long as there’s nothing pepper in there.
Like “nights music” I think the spiders were having a field day while you were gone and your Mari just didn’t notice. Here’s an idea – train the dogs to get the spiders!
nightsmusic, I know he didn;t see them. He doesn’t see them when they;re right in front of him. Oh, too bad about the peppers. I can’t eat the hot ones, but I love bell peppers.
Zoomie, they were probably breeding like rabbits and we’ll have lots more next year LOL
