Stuffed bell pepper with tunafish

Hello Everyone 🙂

Last week I was preparing dinner and decided to stew some veggies and come up with the idea to try them as a filling to bell peppers. I have cooked peppers before with different stuffings, and my mum usually cooks them with cheese and eggs, but this one is different. It is a cooking experiment like many others of my recipes here 🙂 Usually, the fillings are my dinner on some of the weekdays -plus-minus a veggie.

Servings: 5- 6         Time to prepare 15- 20 min        Time to bake 20- 25 min
  • 4 bell peppers
  • 2 can tuna
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 -3 carrots
  • 1 handfull spinach
  • 150 gr/ 1 can frozen green pieceor
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbs. olive or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
Optional Ingredients:
  • 1 -2 gloves
  • hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. flaxseeds
How to:
  1. Chop all veggies without the bell peppers.
  2. Strain the green piece from the water if using from a can.
  3. In a preheated pan, place the onion and garlic and leave until it turns golden.
  4. Add the carrots and green piece and leave for another 3- 5 minutes until they start changing their color.
  5. Add spinach and tuna fish, mix well and leave for a few minutes.
  6. Add the spices( if you wish you can add a favorite spice).
  7. Take aside from the oven and leave for a few minutes.
  8. Take out the stems and seeds from the bell peppers either with hand or using a small knife. ( be careful if using a sharp object).
  9. Start filling the bell peppers.
  10. Leave a small place for the eggs – one of them will be placed in each one at a later stage.
  11. Place the bell peppers in a small baking tray, so they can stay upright.
  12. In preheated oven place the filled peppers.
  13. Leave for about 10 -15 minutes on a 180 degree.
  14. The peppers should have changed the color, then break one egg in each of the peppers and place it in the oven for another 10 min.
  15. Take out of the oven and leave to cool down.
  16. Serve and enjoy 🙂
