Whew, once again, things have been crazy busy. I can’t believe how long it has been since I have had time to post! I guess winter has sucked all of the energy out of me…it’s been a long and cold one this year, so, all the more reason to do something creative! But, instead, I had to cook dinnr, so I will write about that…..I made these stuffed peppers once before and they went over pretty well with the family, so I thought I would share.
I started by putting about a cup of brown rice in the rice cooker. White rice would work too, but we have recently switched to brown rice, and no one has really complained, so I used brown rice. I did add a little powdered chicken soup base to the water to flavour it a little.
Then, I cut up the peppers into thirds, and spread them out in a baking pan. By the time I had the peppers cut, the stuffing was ready, so I dumped it into the bowl with the chicken. By this time the rice was cooked, so I added a couple cups of the cooked rice, and mixed everything together. I also added a bit of soya sauce and garlic powder for flavour.
The best part is that it made enough for two dinners. The first time, we ate it as a meal (why not, it contained all four food groups, right?) The next night, we had it as a side dish.
Next time, I might add some corn, or carrots, but overall, it was good. I’ll make it again!
For those of you in cold places, keep warm, winter will be over soon! This weekend sounds like it’s going to be awful…up to 20cm of snow! ugh.
