Stuffed red peppers with feta


Red peppers are one of those vegetables which can be used almost everywhere. But my favourite way of enjoying them is when they are roasted and pickled with garlic and apple vinegar and finally stuffed with feta. This dish isn't my invention! It is a popular meze in Greece and Turkey. Really delicious!!!

What we need:

6 red or green peppers
50 ml olive oil
1 tbsp of apple vinegar
salt and pepper
3-4 cloves of garlic
dried or fresh thyme
parsley
150 gr feta slices

What we have to do:

1. Clean the peppers. Place them on a baking tray and put in the oven (180C) on the second level. And roast them for 20-30 min. The peppers shouldn't get too soft but the skin can even burn a bit. (It is easier done on a coal grill, which also adds lovely smoky flavour). After takinf them from the oven, cover peppers with aliuminium foil and leave it to cool a bit and them peel the peppers, remove the seeds.

2. Mix chopped garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, oil and vinegar and pour over peppers and leave for at least 1-2 hours.

3. Stuff pickled peppers with feta, then sprinkle some more thyme and parsley, pour some pickling oil and vinegar and serve!!! Enjoy!!!
