Greek stuffed peppers are a excellent for going through the tasty meals Greece has to provide without acquiring to journey additional then your personal kitchen area!
In April I celebrated my 8 calendar year anniversary so I imagined it would be fun to share a Greek dish (entire disclosure I created this at the commencing of April but just now posting it!). My husband and I experienced pretty much a two year engagement prior to getting married on April 12th. We took a mini honeymoon to the Poconos for a number of days and then took our honeymoon to Greece a few of months afterwards (highly propose accomplishing this!) Just one of our favorites factors to do alongside one another is vacation and Greece was our preferred vacation, partly simply because the food stuff was so wonderful. We are preparing to go again and discover new islands for our 10 12 months anniversary which I just cannot believe is just about listed here.
The only terrible factor about traveling to Greece is that it has been seriously difficult to obtain equivalent Greek foods (Greek stuffed grapes leaves, tzatziki, homemade pita, etc.) in the States so we have primarily resorted to earning our possess like these Greek stuffed peppers.
Greek stuffed peppers contain two exciting elements: feta and capers. Have you at any time had capers?? Olives could also be applied in this dish in spot of the capers. Broiling the feta on top rated for a pair minutes really will take this dish to the upcoming degree but the cheese could be omitted if required. If you want a vegetarian or vegan alternative- crumbled tempeh operates definitely effectively in stuffed peppers and I have made it this way and even fooled meat eaters. Chickpeas would get the job done as well in the Greek stuffed peppers, I would just advocate mashing them up a little bit.
