    I made these stuffed capsicum for my friend who is vegetarian. He really liked them and ask me to give him the recipe.

    I only used two large capsicums but I cut them lengthwise which made it easier to fill. I also added 1/2 a finely diced zucchini and used fresh tomatoes from my garden instead of canned. I also added approximately 2 dessert spoons of Sriracha Sauce to the pan after adding the rice. plus I sprinkled grated cheese on top before putting in the oven.. I had about half the mixture left over (because I only used 2 capsicums) and had that for lunch the next 2 days with grated cheese in a soft tortilla cooked in the sandwich press. I am trying to go vegetarian and found this recipe delicious and will be making again.  -  10 Apr 2018


    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  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
