Ingredients

1 pound sweet bell peppers
baby peppers, 1 package
1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
such as olive oil, canola oil
salt and black pepper
to taste
*
12 ounces goat (chevre) cheese
¼ cup mixed herbs
freshly chopped, such as basil, thyme, chives
*
3 tablespoons pine nuts
optional
Balsamic Glaze

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°

With a small pairing knife make a small slit or incision down the middle of the peppers.

Wash and clean peppers inside and out, removing any seeds.

In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, fresh herbs, pine nuts if using salt and pepper to taste until well blended.

Spoon goat cheese and herb mixture into the bell peppers

Drizzle peppers with olive oil.

Roast for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted and peppers are soft.

Remove from oven and drizzle a little bit balsamic glaze over each pepper.

Do not drizzle too much glaze, because it is concentrated, it has lots of flavor, only a few drips will be enough.

Serve right away.

These roasted stuffed baby peppers were super delicious! We used fresh basils and oreganos that add lots of flavor into the creamy goat cheese; we didn't have pine nuts on hand, but that will definitely add some tangy and nutty flavor into it. Serving the peppers with the balsamic glaze is a must, the balsamic glaze gave the nice concentrated sourness and sweetness. Perfectly balanced!
