    Serves: 6 

    • 2 green peppers
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:20min marinating  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Core and seed the peppers. Cut each into six wedges and place into a resealable plastic bag. Add the garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Toss, seal and set aside to marinate at least 20 minutes.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the cooking grate. Stir the goat cheese and lemon pepper seasoning together in a small bowl; set aside.
    3. Cook the peppers, skin-side-up on the preheated barbecue until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Flip the peppers over and carefully spoon the cheese onto each pepper. Close the lid of the barbecue and continue cooking until the bottoms are lightly charred and the cheese is warm, 2 to 3 minutes.

    I did this at home in the grill (in the middle of winter!). I used up some old feta and didn't bother with the marinating. My hubby loved it! Great with a bit of Spanish toast (rub garlic and half a tomato on a hot piece of toast) and salad.  -  31 Dec 2011


    I like it with or without the lemon pepper, usually do it without. They're even better if you add the vegan sun-dried tomato pesto recipe from this site too!!!!  -  27 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Could I give this 7 stars!!! Oh. my. Heaven. I made these for a dinner party, for I had picked a bushel of green peppers at a farm, and needed to use them up. They were the first things gone, and I could have eaten them all. My steaks were still on the grill and so we were just eating all the sides, and my guests said that they were so good they could've had these for the main course! They were tangy with the goat cheese, and the tart lemon pepper with the charred grilled pepper was to die for. I made them again for a friend and her husband, and he liked them so much, he mentioned putting the steak inside and making a pepper steak sandwich! Make them, you will love them!  -  03 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
