STUFFED SWEET RED PEPPERS

STUFFED SWEET RED PEPPERS - FORGET DIETING
We stuffed sweet red peppers with the same spicy risotto mix we cooked with meatballs the other day. The risotto is so versatile, and this was a very tasty way to eat it.
It's packed with flavour and low in calories too (see below).
Just slice the pepper in half and fill with the risotto. Place on a baking tray and cook for around 45 mins at 180ÂșC, until the top is crispy.
You could top with a bit of your fav cheese and let that melt in the oven for a couple of minutes. We sprinkled ours with Parmesan shavings and served with a rocket salad and chicken.
Here's the recipe for the really spicy risotto.
I've got a feeling we'll be making this stuffed red pepper again too!

SPICY RISOTTO
Ingredients - serves 4
heaped teaspoon Harissa paste
half teaspoon dried cinnamon
200g dried basmati rice
440g (large) can chopped tomatoes
350ml chicken or vegetable stock
salt/pepper
chopped parsley to garnish
****
Place ALL the ingredients into a large frying pan.

Bring to the boil then cover with a lid and simmer until the liquid has been soaked up into the rice.

Stir the rice every so often to stop it sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add more water if you feel it's getting too stodgy.

The rice will be cooked in around 20 minutes - check then season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley if you have any.

CALORIES: A quarter of the spicy risotto, in half a sweet red pepper is approximately 200 - 250 calories at most.

Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day?
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
Here's how to FORGET DIETING
