Cheesy Stuffed Peppers

Sweet pointed peppers filled with feta cheese and lots of fresh herbs, a Mediterranean dish, light and full of flavor.

September is already upon us, I feel I did not even get to enjoy summer properly this year and the autumn is already there. If it wasn’t for the last two weeks which have been really nice and hot (and still going at least until the weekend), I would be really annoyed right now… πŸ™‚

But a new month begins and with it a new series on Where Is My Spoon, this time dedicated to Stuffed Veggies. I love stuffing vegetables, all kinds of vegetables, stuffed with all kinds of delicious things. I inherited this love from my grandmother, who would serve stuffed vegetables quite often in our house, mostly stuffed cabbage leaves (sarmale) or stuffed vine leaves. Very often though she would also serve stuffed peppers or tomatoes. I even remember her stuffing an aubergine once, which was quite amazing, considering how little experiments she would allow in her kitchen.

I take the vegetable stuffing thing a bit further than my grandma though. Not only I stuffed aubergines more often than I can remember, but I also do it with zucchini, kohlrabi, mushrooms, potatoes… you name it!

I will start this series with these sweet pointed peppers filled with a creamy and delicious sheep’s feta-herb filling. I found the recipe on Chefkoch.de and I knew I had to make this immediately. I adapted it a little to suit us and it was really worth it! Easy to make and extremely delicious, something not only for the grown-ups but definitely for the children as well. Who doesn’t like a β€œboat” full of salty, melting cheese anyway… And please don’t leave out the cherry tomatoes placed between the peppers, they fit the dish perfectly adding some desired sweetness to the saltiness and heartiness given by the feta cheese. Serve this dish with baguette and green salad.

Thank you, Dawn. My grandma really loved her stuffed veggies and I learned to love them from her as well. More now as when I was a kid. Cooked paprika was not high on my books then… πŸ™‚

In the morning is chilly, but we are still lucky to have a few more sunny days, should get colder next week… Season are nice (or were nice in Romania), but in Germany summer always comes too short…. Boiling hot sounds desirable to me now… πŸ™‚
