Greek stuffed peppers are a excellent for experiencing the scrumptious food stuff Greece has to provide devoid of obtaining to vacation additional then your own kitchen area!
In April I celebrated my 8 yr anniversary so I believed it would be fun to share a Greek dish (total disclosure I made this at the starting of April but just now submitting it!). My husband and I experienced practically a two year engagement ahead of having married on April 12th. We took a mini honeymoon to the Poconos for a couple of days and then took our honeymoon to Greece a pair of months later (extremely endorse executing this!) A single of our favorites factors to do jointly is vacation and Greece was our preferred excursion, partly for the reason that the foods was so astounding. We are organizing to go again and explore new islands for our 10 year anniversary which I can not think is virtually in this article.
The only bad matter about traveling to Greece is that it has been genuinely complicated to locate comparable Greek food (Greek stuffed grapes leaves, tzatziki, do-it-yourself pita, and so forth.) in the States so we have mainly resorted to generating our personal like these Greek stuffed peppers.
Greek stuffed peppers consist of two fun elements: feta and capers. Have you ever experienced capers?? Olives could also be utilized in this dish in spot of the capers. Broiling the feta on top rated for a few minutes truly requires this dish to the future level but the cheese could be omitted if important. If you want a vegetarian or vegan solution- crumbled tempeh is effective genuinely properly in stuffed peppers and I have made it this way and even fooled meat eaters. Chickpeas would operate too in the Greek stuffed peppers, I would just advocate mashing them up a bit.
