I have always loved stuffed peppers. My husband, however, doesn’t much care for roasted peppers or rice. So I decided to be a little creative. The recipe that I generated leaves the peppers raw and uses panko breadcrumbs instead of rice.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 stick margarine or butter
dried parsley flakes
crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 medium onion, minced
2 cups Italian-style panko breadcrumbs
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1/3 to 1/2 cup pareve kishke
2 large red peppers, stemmed and seeded
Boil 1/2 inch of water in a medium skillet. Add oil and margarine. When margarine has melted, add onions. Saute for a few minutes until onions soften. Remove from heat and stir in panko, spices, and cheese. The mixture should now have a couscous-like consistency. If it’s too thin, add flour; if too thick, add milk or soymilk.
Heat kishke to pliable consistency and divide in half. With clean hands, knead half of kishke with about 3 tablespoons of panko mixture, or to taste (the ratio of kishke to panko is up to you). Repeat with second half. Spoon filling into raw peppers and top with about a tablespoon of panko mixture.
Note: I purposely created this recipe to have a lot of panko mixture left over for another use (breading!) If you don’t plan to bread anything in the near future, you can use more kishke and peppers to serve more people (should even out the proportions) or, if you’re serving 2, just scale back the ingredient quantities in the panko mixture.

This sounds yummy! I don’t like red peppers so much (unless they’re crushed and dried and on a pizza), but with this recipe, I just might reconsider…..August 28, 2013 3:52 am at 3:52 am #972353
I always thought that stuffed peppers had meat. I have to say that this looks like it would be very tasty.August 28, 2013 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #972354
