Stuffed peppers, yummy ;)

Hello, dears! Stuff peppers are one common dish in all Balkan countries, but there can also be different variations of the recipe. 
For the following recipe, the cooking time takes approximately 1h and 20min so the peppers get soft. 

The ingredients: 

- 6 big peppers
- 600 gr ground meat - mixed pork, beef) 
- 100 gr rice
- 1 egg
- 200 gr sour cream 
- 200 gr tomato sauce/puree
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots 
- spices: salt, pepper,paprika, dill, parsley


We prepare all the ingredients, wash and cut the peppers, taking out the seeds, grate the carrots and cut the onion. The rice also needs to be boiled, not completely though. 




We mix the carrots, onion, meat, rice and spices in a large bowl. At the end, we add the egg and we continue to mix for a short while.
Then the fun part begins: stuffing the peppers :)



For the sauce in which peppers will boil, we need to mix the sour cream, tomato sauce, salt and pepper.


We arrange the peppers in the pot and we add the sauce:



We cook for at least 1h, on low fire. To see if they are ready, just take one pepper out and check under the "lid" :)

We served ours next to a very fresh salad, with dressing made of yogurt and a bit of oil olive ;)

Bon appetit!

Healthier meatballs in oven

Helloooo!!! Although Valentine's day is approaching I am not going to post a recipe for cakes to sweeten your days. I have something more filling and less "cheesy" :) 
So here it is my recipe for meatballs done in a healthier way - meaning no frying. 

Ingredients: 


  • 500 gr minced meat (whatever you prefer, I had pork)
  • 2 eggs
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic
  • one small onion
  • one carrot
  • 2-3 potatoes, depends how big they are
  • spices :) 




The potatoes are grated and then pressed between hands to release the water from them. 
The carrot and onion are boiled, garlic is just minced. 
In the mean time, you pre-heat the oven at about 150 degrees C. So now it comes to the messy part of mixing all these ingredients together, add the eggs in the end, and of course as many spices as you please. 




Then I made more or less equal meat balls and placed them on baking paper, in a tray. 




I left them in the oven for about 30-40 min at 200 degrees C. 
They become golden and the are simply delicious. 

The result: 




They can served as they are, they work like snack for beer, or next to some garnish or salad. 

The only downside to this process, is that you would have to roll them a bit in the tray when they are getting done, otherwise they will be flat on one side :) 


Bon App├ętit!
