10 capsicums (Californian Wonder)
10 tbsp rice
3 medium size mushrooms (finely chopped)
3 onions (grated)
5 spring onions (finely chopped)
1/5 bunch Italian parsley (finely chopped)
3 stems mint (finely chopped)
3 stems fennel (finely chopped)
3 stems celery (finely chopped)
3 garlic cloves (crushed)
5 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup extra olive oil (for baking)
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper to taste
Spices of your choice
Mamma's Garlic Dressing (for baking)
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
1/4 capsicum (finely chopped)
2 tbsp olive oil
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Remove green stalks from capsicums and discard. Cut through the tops (head) of the capsicums, but don't cut off completely. (The tops will be used for capping after the capsicums are stuffed.) Use a spoon to remove the flesh and seeds from the capsicums. Discard the seeds and place the flesh in a bowl. Mince the flesh with a fork and set aside for later.
Heat the olive oil in a pan and lightly fry the grated onions.
Add springs onions, mushroom, garlic, parsley, mint and celery to the pan stirring continuously while adding ingredients.
Now add the flesh from the capsicums, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Add fennel and chopped tomato and a pinch of sugar.
Then add spices of your choice and dry rice to the frying plan.
Cook the mixture for approximately five minutes, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat when the ingredients are lightly cooked.
Scoop the mixture into the capsicums, stuffing each one to the brim and then covering with its cap.
Place stuffed capsicums on a baking tray and add the water and extra olive oil to the baking tray.
Combine the ingredients for Mamma’s Garlic Dressing and spoon over capsicums.
Put capsicums in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
