My last semester of college has begun, and I can feel this chapter of my life started to come to a close. That being said, I'm hoping to embark on as many adventures as I can, both in the kitchen and out in the world. Today's recipe is less of an adventure and more of a staple, something that you can easily whip up to impress your friends or just for yourself in an effort to have a well-balanced meal. With a winter storm around the corner, this recipe was the perfect addition to my wintery day inside :).
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup rice
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
Salt+Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a pan, drizzle olive oil and sautee the onion until a you smell a delicious aroma.
Prep the rice.
Add in the ground beef, garlic, salt+pepper, and tomato paste, browning the ground beef.
Add in the diced tomatoes, and cover it for another 10 minutes.
Add in the rice.
Cut out the top of the pepper including the core.
Add in the ground beef mixture, topping it with shredded cheese.
In a baking pan, drizzle olive oil at the bottom and add your peppers. Cover the peppers with aluminum foil and bake it for 30 minutes.
Take off the aluminum foil and bake it for another 5-10 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and voila! Easy stuffed peppers.
