Recipe: Grilled Stuffed Bell Peppers

16 May

It’s spring. It’s perfect. The breeze is playing gently in the trees, the bunnies are starting to come out to play, and the mosquitos haven’t hatched yet. The sky is that delightful blue, kids are playing outside, and this pregnant lady isn’t holding so much water she can’t wear her flip flops (yet). Yes, it’s a beautiful time of year.

And, as you know, there are culinary benefits to the beautiful changes in climate as well. I could name a thousand brilliant foods that are at their peak right now, but just a few are those used in this recipe: tomatoes, bell peppers, and… well there’s feta in it too (albeit it’s always in season).

This is the kind of meal that not only looks beautiful, but encourages a beautiful self-image as well. I mean, it’s super healthy, super satisfying, and super amazing in all ways possible. Also: easy. WINNING!

Tomato & Feta Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 2 large yellow bell peppers
  • 2 large green bell peppers
  • 3 medium tomatoes, peeled, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup feta cheese (crumbled)
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil

  1. Cut peppers in halt. Remove and discard seeds and white membranes.
  2. Arrange peppers, cut sides down, on the rack of the uncovered grill for 4 minutes.
  3. Fill peppers with tomatoes, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.
  4. Grill for 4 more minutes.

    This tastes so fresh and cleansing for the taste buds! I tried this out the other night and the natural sweetness of the bell peppers and tomatoes is just delightful. This is definitely a winning recipe. Five stars.

    Exactly what I was looking for! I have leftover feta and I needed a way to use them without directly eating them out of the container 🙂 This looks delicious!

      You might laugh when you hear this- but I’ve been snacking out of my blue cheese container for the past few days! Cheese for all! So glad you like it! Let me know how it turns out. 🙂
