“Red bell peppers are stuffed with a mixture of rice, chard, and black-eyed peas.” - by MOTTSBELA
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Place the red peppers on the prepared baking sheet, and bake until tender, about 15 minutes.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the black-eyed peas and chard. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook until the chard is wilted, 5 to 8 minutes. Mix in the cooked brown rice, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and lightly stuff the mixture into the red peppers. Serve hot.

"A great idea for a New Year treat! I didn't have peppers, so I sauteed the onion and garlic, then added black eyed peas, canned mushrooms and a ton of swiss chard. A little seasoning topped it off. ..." See more Served over a bed of rice, this was superb -- and super easy. Great for someone who really doesn't care for black eyed peas too much."
"Excellent recipe! I doubled the ingredients (8) and added all of the Swiss Chard (bunch) also, I added a half cup of parmesan cheese to the mix. AMAZING..." See more"
