Healthy Office Lunch – Stuffed Peppers with Beans

For the beginning of February we want to suggest you a traditional Bulgarian winter recipe. It is traditionally cooked in Bulgaria for the Christmas Eve and we kind of forget about it after this time of the year. However, it’s worth to remind ourselves about it…

You might think that the recipe is time consuming and hard to prepare. Actually, the only tricky moment here is that you should put the peppers and the dried tomatoes in a bowl with water for couple of hours or overnight. And make sure to plan 30 minutes for baking the dish in the oven. Besides that, the stuffed peppers are relatively easy and fast to make. And the preparation time is totally worth as they are super tasty and also quite healthy. So what is more important than taking a good care of your menu and this way of your healthy lifestyle everyday?

Ingredients:

  • 10 dried peppers
  • 400 gr. boiled beans
  • 1 or 2 green onions
  • 5, 6 dried tomatoes
  • spearmint
  • salt
  • sunflower oil or animal fat

Method:

  • Soak the pepper and the dried tomatoes into water and leave them so for couple of hours or overnight
  • Chop the onions into small pieces and fry them for a bit in the pan
  • And the beans and fry for couple of minutes
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and the spices and stir
  • Fill the peppers and put them in a baking dish
  • Bake for about 30 minutes

We thank Gabriela for the great recipe and pack our lunch bob with the freshly made stuffed peppers! As quite big fans of the healthy desserts, we couldn’t forget to grab one or two amara bars – made by dried bio fruits and nuts and covered with a real bean-to-bar chocolate!

Bon appetite!
