My first CEIMB post, yay! Its kind of nice that my first recipe was very straightforward and was baked in an oven :)
The recipe was chosen by Ali from the healthy hostess.
I was a little unsure about the recipe when i saw the list of ingredients, bulgar wheat (never tried it), zucchini (or courgette as i know it, and not that fond of it), and red peppers (hmm). Well its my first CEIMB and i'm not going to give it a miss, and i do want to get over any irrational fears or apprehension of certain foods that i have.
I loved the preparation of this. Everything except the peppers, tomatoes and cheese, gets mixed altogether in a bowl, stuffed into the pepper halves then topped with the tomatoes and cheese. How easy is that? I did add the juice and some zest of a lemon as i still have lemons left over from my TWD French Yogurt Cake, and i also added some mozzarella cheese. I actually made double the recipe as I have family staying with me at the moment. Somehow i ended up with more stuffing then peppers so i just filled all the gaps with it too.
So in it went into the oven and an hour and a half later it was time to tuck in. I served it with brown rice and it was really yummy. Next time (yes i will be making it again) i will add some chilli and allspice to bring out the flavours a little more.
Thanks for a great choice and entry into CEIMB :)
