Stuffed Bell Peppers

A very nice recipe to serve at a dinner party. I like to use a variety of colored bell peppers for a beautiful display.

4-6 large bell peppers (assorted colors)

2 cloves of garlic minced

1/2 an onion diced

3-4 tomatoes diced (roma works well)

1 cups cooked green lentils (or 1 can of lentils drained and rinsed)

1/2-1 cup cooked basmati rice

1/2 spoon of chili powder

1/2 spoon ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

Wash and cut the tops off the peppers. De-seed the peppers. Place in a baking dish filled with 1/4 inch of water. In a bowl mix all the ingredients together well. Spoon into each pepper, filling to the top. Cover the dish of peppers with an oven proof lid or tin foil. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 30 min or until the peppers are tender. Serve hot and enjoy.

Tip: I like to bake these peppers with grated cheese on top. Old fashioned cheddar will do just fine.

Yum!
