 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Dry red kidney beans
  • 1 c Brown rice
  • 6 Green peppers
  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 4 Garlic (minced)
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 2 Stalks celery (diced)
  • 2 Carrots (diced)
  • 2 Tomatoes - peeled, seeded,
  • 1/2 ts Dried basil
  • 1/4 ts Dried red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 ts Dried oregano


Bring 2 1/2 cups salted water to boil, add 1 cup rice, cover and simmer for
45 minutes (or until all liquid is absorbed). Put 2 tablespoons olive oil
in frying pan and add the minced garlic. Saute for 3 minutes, stirring so
the garlic doesn't burn. Add onion, celery, and carrots and saute for an
additional 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and mix with the rice. Add the
seasonings (all the dried seasonings, plus salt and pepper) and mix well.
Mix in the beans with 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid. Cut the tops
off the green peppers and remove the seeds. Stand peppers in shallow baking
dish that has been brushed with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Fill peppers with
bean and rice mixture. Ladle seasoned diced tomatoes over top of each
pepper and top off each with a tablespoon of reserved liquid. Cover dish
and roast in 350' oven for 35-45 minutes or until peppers are tender.
