Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers

 
Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers

Greek flavor perfectly matched each other. I drizzled a splash of high-quality extra-virgin olive oil just before serving. Even though it tasted clean and light, it was actually quite filling because of orzo and chickpeas. The presentation looked great as well, will definitely be making this again.

Ingredients

4 sweet red bell peppers
yellow and orange
*
½ cup orzo pasta
whole wheat
*
15 ounces chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
rinsed
1 tablespoon olive oil, extra-virgin
1 medium onions
chopped
6 ounces baby spinach
coarsely chopped
*
1 tablespoon oregano
chopped fresh
¾ cup feta cheese
crumbled, divided
¼ cup sundried tomatoes
not oil-packed, chopped
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
or red-wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

undefined Halve peppers lengthwise through the stems, leaving the stems attached.

Remove the seeds and white membrane. Place the peppers cut-side down in a large microwave-safe dish.

Add ½ inch water, cover and microwave on High until the peppers are just softened, 7 to 9 minutes.

Let cool slightly, drain and set aside. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil.

Add orzo and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.

Drain and rinse with cold water.

Mash chickpeas into a chunky paste with a fork, leaving some whole. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes.

Add spinach and oregano and cook, stirring, until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.

Stir in the orzo, chickpeas, ½ cup feta, tomatoes, vinegar and salt; cook until heated though, about 1 minute.

Divide the filling among the pepper halves and sprinkle each pepper with some of the remaining ¼ cup feta.

Made these stuffed peppers yesterday, they were absolutely delicious. Spinach, feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and cooked orzo made a flavorful yet wholesome filling. Just finished leftover a while ago for brunch, it was still very tasty. Definitely a keeper!

Very clean and fresh tasting and looked amazing. The Greek flavors perfectly matched each other. I added a splash of high quality extra-virgin olive oil just before serving. Even with the light clean taste it turned out to be quite filling with the orzo and chickpeas. The presentation looks great, will definitely be making this for company.
