Greek stuffed peppers are a best for experiencing the delightful food Greece has to present with no obtaining to journey even more then your have kitchen!
In April I celebrated my 8 12 months anniversary so I assumed it would be fun to share a Greek dish (complete disclosure I produced this at the starting of April but just now posting it!). My partner and I experienced practically a two yr engagement just before finding married on April 12th. We took a mini honeymoon to the Poconos for a handful of days and then took our honeymoon to Greece a few of months later (hugely advocate executing this!) Just one of our favorites items to do alongside one another is vacation and Greece was our favourite journey, partly since the foodstuff was so amazing. We are setting up to go back and discover new islands for our 10 calendar year anniversary which I simply cannot imagine is just about listed here.
The only negative thing about touring to Greece is that it has been really tricky to obtain equivalent Greek food (Greek stuffed grapes leaves, tzatziki, selfmade pita, etcetera.) in the States so we have largely resorted to producing our very own like these Greek stuffed peppers.
Greek stuffed peppers include two pleasurable components: feta and capers. Have you at any time experienced capers?? Olives could also be utilized in this dish in area of the capers. Broiling the feta on best for a pair minutes seriously can take this dish to the subsequent amount but the cheese could be omitted if needed. If you want a vegetarian or vegan option- crumbled tempeh functions really perfectly in stuffed peppers and I’ve designed it this way and even fooled meat eaters. Chickpeas would operate as well in the Greek stuffed peppers, I would just suggest mashing them up a bit.
