Greek stuffed peppers are a fantastic for encountering the scrumptious food stuff Greece has to provide without having getting to vacation even more then your individual kitchen!
In April I celebrated my 8 year anniversary so I assumed it would be fun to share a Greek dish (comprehensive disclosure I built this at the beginning of April but just now posting it!). My spouse and I had pretty much a two 12 months engagement ahead of obtaining married on April 12th. We took a mini honeymoon to the Poconos for a few times and then took our honeymoon to Greece a couple of months later on (highly propose undertaking this!) One particular of our favorites items to do alongside one another is vacation and Greece was our most loved excursion, partly due to the fact the food stuff was so awesome. We are organizing to go back and investigate new islands for our 10 12 months anniversary which I can not feel is pretty much right here.
The only undesirable thing about traveling to Greece is that it has been actually challenging to come across comparable Greek foodstuff (Greek stuffed grapes leaves, tzatziki, home made pita, etcetera.) in the States so we have primarily resorted to generating our very own like these Greek stuffed peppers.
Greek stuffed peppers include two entertaining substances: feta and capers. Have you at any time experienced capers?? Olives could also be used in this dish in area of the capers. Broiling the feta on top rated for a couple minutes actually normally takes this dish to the following level but the cheese could be omitted if important. If you want a vegetarian or vegan selection- crumbled tempeh works really perfectly in stuffed peppers and I have designed it this way and even fooled meat eaters. Chickpeas would function much too in the Greek stuffed peppers, I would just recommend mashing them up a bit.
