Preparation

The first step involves preparing your peppers. Wash them, cut the top part and set it aside, clean the inside and place the peppers in a baking dish layered with baking paper or a silicone mat.

Next, take the top part of the peppers, remove the stem, and cut the rest into small strips. Add it to a bowl.

Continue cleaning and slicing the cherry tomatoes in halves or four pieces, depending on how small they are.

Mix everything well and start filling your peppers. In case any filling is left you can use it in salads together with some rucola or iceberg lettuce or inside panini with some provolone cheese or your cheese of choice.

Tips

If you would like to accompany this with another recipe, I would suggest our brown rice with green pesto and smoked salmon. Being both fish based recipes they go really well together. Otherwise, you can serve the stuffed peppers with a salad and a cheese platter. Obviously, this can also be served as a starter on its own.
