Pimento Peppers stuffed with Herby Brown Rice and Feta

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 🙂
