Stuffed Peppers with rice, black beans and feta cheese

Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Peppers

2 cups water
1 cup uncooked brown rice
4 green bell peppers, halved and seeded
1 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 diced red onion
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 Salt to taste
2 pinches ground black pepper
14 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
14 oz black beans canned

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Peppers

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  2. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.

  3. Place the peppers cut-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until tender and skin starts to brown.

  4. While the peppers are roasting, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato, and cook for 5 minutes. Spoon in the cooked rice and black beans, and stir until heated through. Remove from heat, mix in the feta cheese, and spoon the mixture into the pepper halves.

  5. Return to the oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
