Stuffed bell peppers are one of my favourite dishes: light, healthy, easy to make and tasty! I also like them stuffed with rice (peas and tomato sauce or saffron)  but yesterday I used courgettes and red onions for the filling. Here’s my recipe, As you see, extremely simple and pretty quick. Enjoy :)

Ingredients (4 servings):

  • 2 big bell peppers
  • 2 courgettes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 red onion
  • 50 gr Gouda cheese (or any melting cheese)
  • 50 gr Parmesan (or hard grated cheese)
  • 50 gr bread crumbs
  • 2 spoons olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
  • salt

First thing you want to do is grate the courgettes, and chop the onion. Then heat two spoons of olive oil in a pan with finely chopped garlic for a few minute and lightly fry the onion. Add the courgettes, put salt in and cover. Let it cook for 10/15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the bell peppers in two, wash them and put them in a casserole. Chop the cheese. In a bowl, whip the eggs. At this point, the courgettes should be done. Put them in the bowl together with the chopped cheese, Parmesan and bread crumb. Mix. Now you are ready to fill the bell peppers. It’s also time to heat oven to 350 degrees F (175°).

  1. These sound lovely. I’m not sure whether my kids would eat them or not, generally not being fond of vegetables! But I’m up for trying anything and I can eat them even if they don’t!
