I cook stuffed green peppers the European way, but am not sure if there isnot a healthier way of making them. Simply put, I start the rice first. Saute onions, smidge of garlic with ground chuck (freshly ground,mind you). Add in finely chopped carrot and any other spices. After mixture is throughyl browned, drain off any excess fat. Mix in tomato paste. Simmer to get flavors to blend. Final step is to blend in rice. Put mixture into green pepper shells. Any excess put in casserole. Put stuffed peppers into shallow pan with an inch or so of water. Put that and casserole into oven at 325 degrees for aproximately half hour. Remove and eat. Now I was taught to blanch the pepper shells firwt, but I dont asx then they are not crisp. Any other ideas?
