I love stuffed bell peppers. I usually buy the frozen ones from Stouffer's. They're made with beef and rice and lots of great favor. One evening, I had a craving...but no beef. So I decided to make my own meatless version.
1 large or 2 small bags of boil-in-the-bag brown rice
Spices as desired
Sliced or grated cheese to go on top (your choice of type--I used Swiss)
Cook the rice by package directions
Cut the peppers in half and clean out the seeds and pith.
Put the pepper halves in a microwave safe dish with a lid. Microwave until starting to get soft Start with 1-2 of minutes and add time as needed. (But don't cook until mushy.)
Once done cooking, empty the rice into a bowl. Flavor the rice with a little butter and seasonings like salt and pepper. You may want to go heavy here so they're not bland.
Put the dish (uncovered) into a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Allow to brown a bit and melt cheese. You may even want to put the pepper under the broiler to get the cheese bubbly quickly.
