Colourful stuffed peppers with Indian spiced lamb and brown rice filling. Did I say this flavourful filling has cheese too? A delicious and easy stuffed pepper recipe which can be prepared ahead and baked just before serving.
This recipe was on my to-do list for a long time. But then I was so confused with the stuffing. I could of think of so many variations to the filling. It was tough for me to decide on one. Last weekend got some colourful vibrant bell peppers and I knew what I am going to do with them. I started gathering ingredients on my kitchen counter from whatever available. As it was for the Sunday lunch, the dish had to be a complete meal in itself. Prepared the lamb mince usual way, added some cooked brown rice to it and to make it look complete topped it with some cheese while baking.
Everyone just loved it. The slight crunch from the peppers and once you dig in a flavourful filling of nutty brown rice and minced lamb. All the flavours and textures blended so well.
You can make the filling ahead,stuff the peppers and keep in the refrigerator. Bake them just before serving. As I told you before use your imagination while making the filling. This is a good way of using leftover veggies or meat and presenting in more an interesting way.
