Stuffed Bell Peppers are Easy, Yummy and Delicious!!
4 large bell peppers
3/4 to 1 pound ground beef or Turkey
1 small white onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
handful of chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 cups cooked brown rice (I use Trader Joe’s frozen)
1 cup tomato based pasta sauce
salt & pepper to taste
Steam the peppers to soften them. If you have a steamer pot, place the peppers in the steamer, fill the bottom with with water, boil and steam for 25 minutes. You can also place the peppers in a large pot, fill with water, bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Drain the peppers on toweling.
For softer peppers, add an inch of water to the pan.
For firmer peppers, don’t add water.
Cover the pan with foil and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
