Here is a very simple stuffed pepper recipe that are perfect as a side or an appetizer. I served these at a recent party, and they made perfect finger foods. You can also stuff larger peppers, but the flavor might be too intense for an entree. Enjoy

  • 1 cup of pistachios (roasted and salted)
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of hot water

  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat over to 400. Next, slice the pepper in half, lengthwise. With a small knife remove the seeds. Place the peppers on a cookie sheet ant bake for 10 minutes. They should be slighty roasted, yet firm.
  • In the bowl of your food processor, add the the ingredients (except the cooked rice). Wiz around until creamy. Taste the mixture to see if more salt/pepper is needed. If you need more water to thin it out, add it slowly. Hot water works best.
  • When the mix is done, transfer to a lage bowl, and mix with the rice. Mix well.
  • When the peppers have cooled, stuff them with the mixture.
  • Serve room temp or cold!
