    I made these stuffed peppers for my friend who is vegetarian. He really liked them and ask me to give him the recipe. Well here it is :)

    2. Cook rice in boiling water for 10-12 minutes, or according to packet instructions.
    3. Remove core and seeds from peppers. Cook in boiling water for 7-8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

    You could top the peppers with grated cheese and breadcrumbs before baking in the oven.

    Agreed with Avonhurst here - the quantity is wrong. So basically just use SIX PEPPERS, not just four. You'll need SIX. :D But honestly, you can eat the rice+mushrooms+tomatoes combo with bread or just on its own, perhaps even with a salad when there's too much left. Nonetheless, it was super delicious! Loved it.  -  07 May 2014

    Simple and tasty, quantity is all wrong. We used average sized peppers, but were left with more than half the ingredients.  -  07 Jul 2013
