Directions

Directions: Pre-heated 375 oven 1. Pour 1/2 cup of olive oil in skillet and add your diced onions, garlic and stir and simmer for 5-7 minutes to sweat until the onions are soft and translucent. Now add your tomatoes puree and simmer for another five minutes. Add the rice, the herbs (dill, parsley, mint) and stir in then take off the heat. Add your salt and pepper and stir in and allow to cool. 2. In the meantime, rinse your peppers and carefully cut stem end off the pepper. Remove the ribs and seeds inside the peppers (use fingers, knife or spoon) and find a deep baking dish or roasting pan that fill your peppers very tightly. 3. Using a spoon, stuff your peppers (push the filling down with your fingers if need be) and place the stem on the pepper and lay sideways in your roasting pan. Repeat and stuff your remaining peppers (tomatoes are great to stuff as well). 4. Pour the remaining olive oil over all the peppers plus enough hot water to come up halfway up the peppers. Sprinkle coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper and place in your pre-heated oven (uncovered) for 70-90 minutes or until the peppers are golden-brown on top, rice is cooked (go on, open a pepper and taste-test). Serve with good homemade crusty bread....that sauce is gold!
