As South Africans we ‘braai’ a lot! So that often leads to eating way too much meat – especially red meat! So, one Friday evening when Hubby had to satisfy his craving for lamb riblets, I decided to improvise a bit! Didn’t feel like meat, so I tried this dish – it will make a great braai side dish as well!
2 Pimento Peppers (you can use bell peppers or paprika peppers as well)
Garlic and Herb Brown Rice
140g cooked brown rice
5ml Basil-infused olive oil
50g chopped onions
Garlic and Herb Seasoning to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
60g low fat feta, crumbed
Prepare Peppers by making a slit on top and removing the pips and core. Roast/braai on grill until the peppers start to blister.
Fry onions in olive oil until soft. Stir in cooked brown rice and add Garlic and Herb Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.
When ready to serve, stuff peppers with brown rice and top with feta.
Serves 1 – 2 Veg, 2 CC, 2 Protein
When serving it as a side dish at a braai, you can omit the feta and have the peppers with your favourite braaied meat 🙂
