I loves this recipe. To make this recipe more budget friendly, instead of using pine nuts, I used walnuts but your could use almonds too. And instead of Parmesan I used garlic herb cheddar. So delicious and healthy. I would make it again.
Felt it needed a little more seasoning. A little on bland side. I added Sun dried tomatoes diced mushrooms and Cajun seasoning. Didn't have pine nuts so used raw sunflower seeds Sauteed with the onions and mushrooms. Loved it with the add ins.
I'm trying to convert to vegetarian and this was an excellent vegan choice. The only substitution I made was using spinach instead of the kale. My picky husband even said he didn't see much of a difference between this recipe and meat filled peppers. I do think the portions are small but having a side dish helps. I have made this several times and will continue to make them.
Good not great I made this because I had some kale and red peppers to use up. I had a part of a green pepper so I added that to the filling instead of the red pepper. Also I know know why the instructions says to boil the kale. I just added it to the dry pan after the onions garlic and green pepper and wilted it which worked great. I added some fresh thyme because it had it. Overall I thought it needed a bit more flavor.
Excellent dish! I basically cleaned out my fridge on this one I didn't have any pine nuts but had some left over zucchini and portabella mushrooms which I diced up sauteed and put in the filling. I omitted the red pepper in the filling and just used some crushed red pepper for seasoning. This was one of the most amazing dishes I've ever made my husband said I should open a healthy living restaurant after trying these...and he's from New Jersey grew up on eating stuffed peppers so this is a real compliment!
I use my own version...but it's so good. I love this recipe it's one of my favorites and I make it as much as I can (or when red peppers are on sale...). However I modified it with the rice I use onions and jalapenos only I skip the chopped red pepper. I skip the pine nuts and kale. And in the last 5 minutes after taking the foil off I put a slice of pepper jack cheese over each pepper. IT'S SO DELICIOUS. Pros: TASTY! Cons: Long prep/cook time
This recipe was a hit...my husband loved.....in fact we made it two days in a row (his request). However second time I added raisins.....wow....made a nice difference in fact better sweetness was good. Plus I added grated lite cheddar to mix....yum
I altered the recipe a bit but it still came out great. I omitted the diced pepper from the mixture and added leeks because I had them and some lentils to make it more filling. The toasted pine nuts were great! I would definitely make this again. I think some zucchini or mushrooms would be good in it.
Great Kale Recipe I am always looking for recipes for Kale. Kale has so many nutrients. I will make this again but next time I will use a little more seasoning and cheese. Pros: You can use a variation of vegetables and whole grains with this recipe Cons: None
Revised Delicious although I have a few suggestions. - Boiling the red peppers initially will cut down on the baking time and the knife pressure (had difficult time cutting). - Not enough stuffing overall. Increase rice from 3/4 cups to 1 cup - Did not used dice red pepper too much pepper! - Used raw sunflower seeds and raw pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts to save on time searching in store. - I've never had kale and didn't want to risk it so I used spinach. - I used frozen Whole Grain Rice from whole foods instead of brown rice to cut down on time. Overall delicious! Will be making again. Pros: Filling low-calorie flavorful Cons: Revised for a reason
Colorful and delicious Wowzer! This was delicious. I substituted quinoa for the brown rice but otherwise made the recipe exactly as written. My 17 year old initially wrinkled his nose when he learned no meat was included in the dish but then inhaled two servings and told me he would make frequent trips home from college just so he could eat my home cooked meals. Success! Pros: Chock full of flavor and nutrition Cons: but not a weeknight quick dinner
