Over the last 2 weeks, my husband and I have been very busy traveling and have not had the opportunity for quality food time. But earlier in the week, I wanted to try creating some stuffed peppers.
The first time I ever tried a stuffed pepper was at a Serbian restaurant in Milwaukee when I was 16 years old. I do not remember the details of each ingredient but, I can remember it being very tender, sweet, and popping with herb flavors.
My stuffed pepper was meant to be time-friendly, delicious and inexpensive. Due to my lack of a culinary degree.. I did not make the most educated attempt at stuffing these peppers. After cutting the peppers into halves, I then filled them with ground chicken, sauteed onions, fennel seed, garlic and a thin layer of mozzarella cheese. Adding stewed tomatoes and rice to the mixture would have made a greater impression on our taste buds.
Trust me... the dish was still very enjoyable. Plus, it did not require any utensils other than the 2 that God attached to our bodies. I know that I am capable of creating something that packs more flavor and reflects my abilities more proudly.
Next time, I will conduct a little culinary research and perhaps find some tips on great ingredients for the typcial stuffed pepper. Nothing wrong with getting a little direction!
