Baked Stuffed Bell Peppers

12:26 PM

The local bell peppers have finally  shown up at the grocery store and I wasted no time making this classic family favorite.

Stuffed Bell Peppers
1 lb ground beef
2 cups tomato sauce
4 medium green or red bell peppers
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1 onion, chopped
"Daiya" Mozzarella cheese shreds (if desired)
Olive oil

Boil seeded whole peppers in a large pot of brine until fork tender and set aside.

Combine chopped onion and ground beef in a large skillet with some olive oil and saute until the meat is browned.  Add brown rice, and tomato sauce, stir until well incorporated.  Set aside. 
Preheat oven to 350f.
Place the peppers in a deep baking dish and stuff them with the skillet ingredients.  Top with Daiya Mozzarella if desired or with an extra drizzle of sauce.  Cover with aluminium foil and bake for 1 hour.  

Remove from oven and wait until they're cool enough to eat.
