Sensational Stuffed Peppers

by in In Season, August 21st, 2013

Turkey and Rice Stuffed PeppersIf you ask FN Dish, red, yellow and green peppers do much more than add color to your plate. With crunchy thick walls and a juicy-sweet disposition, the hollowed-out veggies are meant for stuffing: with grains, meats, veggies or all of the above. These smooth-skinned beauties are not only brimming with antioxidants, they also invite a slew of possibilities.

This week, perfectly in-season bell peppers have every reason to make it to your table — especially when they’re bursting with all kinds of good things. Need some inspiration for your next stuffed sensation? FN Dish has you covered.

Giada adds an Italian flair to her Orzo Stuffed Peppers by using the short-grain pasta, while her Stuffed Baby Peppers — with pancetta, ricotta and Parmesan — work as creamy bite-size appetizers.

Chile Rellenos, Spanish Stuffed Bell Peppers, Greek-Style Stuffed Peppers and Food Network Magazine’s Cajun Stuffed Peppers each stay true to their roots while remaining unanimously satisfying.

Merging lean protein with healthful bell peppers is good in all the right ways. Food Network Magazine’s Turkey and Rice Stuffed Peppers (pictured above) encase lean ground turkey, part-skim mozzarella, feta and rice donned with a homemade tomato sauce.

Put leftovers to use with Food Network Magazine’s Ragu-Stuffed Peppers or try out Crab and Prosciutto-Stuffed Peppers for a surf-and-turf statement.

Stuffing your peppers with couscous makes for a satisfyingly wholesome dish. Giada’s Couscous-Stuffed Peppers with Basil Sauce feature pops of sweetness from dried currants, while Sweet and Sour Couscous-Stuffed Peppers are sweet through and through.

Peppers come with loads of health benefits on their own, but these Lightened-Up Stuffed Peppers by Food Network Magazine take it further with brown lentils, rice and ultra-lean beef.

Seriously, we can’t get enough of bell peppers this season, whether they’re stuffed, roasted or munched on raw.
