Feta and Tomato Stuff Peppers

This is a household favorite recipe.  It’s easy to make, fast and healthy.  Besides anything with feta cheese is destined to be marvelous!  I started making this to expand our vegetarian options at home, but you could add some ground beef as well.   Or quinoa in place of the rice.  ENJOY!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 2 green bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbed feta cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet

In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.

Place the peppers cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until tender and skin starts to brown.

While the peppers are roasting, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato, and cook for 5 minutes

Spoon in the cooked rice, and stir until heated through. Remove from heat, mix in the feta cheese, and spoon the mixture into the pepper halves.

Return to the oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
