Baked Stuffed Peppers in Tomato Sauce / Pečene punjene paprika u umaku od rajčice

A summer without stuffed peppers is in my humble opinion no summer at all. Yeah, sure, there might be sun and excess sweating involved, you might even dip your toes into the sea, but the smell of stuffed pepper cooking is what really gives the summer that familiar feeling. I usually cook the peppers in a pot, but this time decided to try making them in the oven to get that nice charred kick. This dish holds in the fridge for a few days and reheats great, so don’t be shy and cook up more in advance.

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Wash peppers and carefully carve the stems and seeds out. In a bowl mix together turkey, onion, garlic, rice, egg, salt, pepper, paprika and parsley. Stuff the filling into carved peppers and arrange peppers in an oven-safe dish so the carved sides are turned upwards. Pour tomato sauce around peppers, cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for an hour. After one hour carefully (Watch out for the steam!) remove the foil and bake peppers for additional 20-30 minutes, until the tops get crispy and slightly charred. Serve hot with mashed, boiled or roasted potatoes.

Ljeto bez punjenih paprika po mojem skromnom mišljenju uopće nije ljeto. Da, da, možda bude sunca i prekomjernog znojenja. Možda čak umočite prste u more. Ali miris paprika koje se kuhaju ili peku je ono što ljetu daje onaj poznati osjećaj. Punjene paprike obično radim u loncu na štednjaku, ali sam se ovaj puta odlučila da ih probam napraviti u pečnici da dobijem onaj fini zapečeni šmek. Ovo jelo možete par dana čuvati u hladnjaku, a pošto se super podgrijava, nemojte se sramiti i skuhajte više.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 paprika / 6,10 kn po paprici / 48,76 kn za sve)

8 velikih paprika babura (10,00 kn)

500 g mljevene puretine (25,00 kn)

1 veliki luk, sitno nasjeckan (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,75 kn)

2 šalice kuhane riže (1,50 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žlica slatke crvene paprike (0,50 kn)

2 žlice sušenog peršina (1,00 kn)

3 šalice pasirane rajčice (7,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Operite paprike i pažljivo im izdubite peteljke i koštice. U zdjeli pomiješajte puretinu, luk, češnjak, rižu, jaje, sol, papar, crvenu papriku i peršin. Izdubljene paprike napunite smjesom te ih poslažite u dubljem protvanu, tako da izdubljeni dio gleda prema gore. Oko paprika izlijte pasiranu rajčicu, pokrijte posudu aluminijskom folijom, te pecite sat vremena. Nakon sat vremena pažljivo (Pazite se pare!) maknite foliju pa pecite još dodatnih 20-30 minuta, dok se paprike po vrhu lijepo ne zapeku. Poslužite vruće sa pire krumpirom, ili pak kuhanim ili pečenim krumpirima.
