Stuffed Peppers Vegetarian Recipe

Now I would like to introduce my Stuffed Peppers Recipe to you with pleasure.
This recipe is purely vegetarian. I still know stuffed peppers from my grandma.
She always used minced meat as filling. I, however, prefer vegetarian food by the day and find the vegetable cuisine exciting and varied.
So I thought about how to modernise this traditional granny recipe.
Variety makes my filling interesting. In the course of my recipe you will find vegetable additions that also leave room for your own creations.
Let yourself be inspired by me or cook it one to one. It tastes delicious anyway – guaranteed! I wish you success and a good appetite!

3.1 Quinoa and Rice
The basis of my filling is cooked brown rice and cooked quinoa. So far so good, we’ll put everything in a pot… but wait! The cooking times of brown rice and quinoa are very different. Brown rice takes between 30-40 minutes. Quinoa takes only half the cooking time, 15 minutes, so we should cook rice and quinoa separately in 2 pots.
Quinoa and brown rice – note different cooking times!
I for my part prepare the rice with 2 parts vegetable stock and 1 part rice – I do the same with quinoa. So nothing should go wrong.
I use oyster mushrooms, fresh green beans, fresh peas, spring onions. We have to clean our vegetables first. The mushrooms and spring onions are fried separately. Peas and beans are blanched. All the vegetable ingredients are mixed with the cooked rice and quinoa after the short pre-cooking. I also add spices, crème fraîche and some tomato paste.
Our main actor, the peppers! We don’t want to forget it. For my purposes, I have chosen pointed peppers. They can be gratinated with Parmesan cheese when sliced lengthwise.
For the gratin I use freshly grated Parmesan cheese. This way our stuffed, deliciously fragrant pointed peppers are deliciously placed on the oven.
