First, let me start out by apologizing for no posts last week. I know my all of three followers are very upset (please excuse my sarcasm!). But seriously last week was a whirlwind of activity and I didn’t have the time to make a single home cooked meal. Needless to say my body hates me this week from all the crap I ate. In between running around and party-hopping on Saturday afternoon I somehow miraculously managed to squeeze in these stuffed banana peppers for a quick lunch. All of the ingredients I had on hand in my practically empty fridge. Given the time constraints and the lack of ingredients, this came out surprisingly well although, I’ll admit, I was expecting to be a little disappointed. Thankfully I proved myself wrong this time!
Greek Stuffed Banana Peppers
- 2 banana peppers, washed with seeds removed (if you like it spicy, keep a few seeds)
- 1/2 cup precooked brown rice
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried oregano
- 1/4 cup marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small dish combine rice, feta, garlic powder and oregano and mix. Divide the mixture between both peppers and stuff. In a small baking dish, add a layer of marinara sauce, then the peppers, then top with remaining marinara. Cover in foil and bake for 10 minutes.
