Ingredients List

Struggle no more with eating healthily! This sumptuous dish incorporates a mixture of freshly harvested ingredients to make your palate sing. Here’s what you need:

  • 4 Large Bell Peppers (any color)
  • 1 cup Wild Rice
  • 300g Fresh Mushrooms (Champignons or cremini work wonderfully)
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Vegetable Broth
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Fresh Herbs for garnish – parsley, dill, or thyme

Instructions

  1. Prepare the bell peppers by cutting off the tops and scooping out the seeds and membranes. Brush the peppers and their tops with some olive oil, then place them on a lined baking sheet.

  2. Rinse the wild rice under cold water and set it aside.

  3. Over medium heat, warm up your olive oil in a skillet. Toss in the onions and garlic, cooking until they’re glossy and fragrant.

  4. Add mushrooms to the pan and cook until they’ve released their moisture and started to brown.

  5. Pour in your vegetable broth, and follow up with the wild rice. Lower the heat, cover the skillet and simmer until the rice is tender and the broth has been absorbed.

  6. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). While the oven is heating, spoon the mushroom-rice mixture into the bell peppers.

  7. Cover the peppers with their tops and bake until they’re tender and golden, roughly 25-30 minutes. Let them cool slightly before serving, garnished with fresh herbs.
