Last night was Tuesday Doomsday, my night to cook. I've made these several times, and I can't decscribe how yummy they are. Even a mega meat-eater friend who first turned his nose up at these, now begs me to make them. I'm sure you COULD add a meat of your choice, but they are delicious without it.
5-6 Bell peppers (any color)
6 cups of cooked rice
about 5 large mushrooms
2 cups of milk
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup cheese (any cheese works, cheddar is delicious)
a couple handfuls of fresh spinach
Boil the peppers AND tops in water with a couple dashes of salt for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside in a baking dish.
Throw those couple handfuls of spinach into a tablespoon or so of butter and saute it for about 3 minutes.
Saute them all together for a few minutes, then add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir that for a few seconds, then add the milk. Looks appetizing, no? Ha, ha... Anyways, bring it to a boil and stir it until it thickens into a gravy consistency.
Stuff the peppers FULL. Add a sprinkle of cheese on top for kicks, and put the tops back on. Add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Prepare to impress.
Oh, so delicious. I laugh in the face of the mega meat-eater friend.
