Light Greek Stuffed Peppers

These Light Greek Stuffed Peppers have just the right amount of herbs, rice and lean ground beef to make the perfect meal!



Happy Wednesday everyone!  Its Date Night and Dinner Parties today at The Slow Roasted Italian.  Tonight we are serving Greek Stuffed Peppers, a twist on the ordinary.  An impressive dish to serve for Date Night or Dinner Party!!!  Hope you enjoy, Em and I love these!


Mr. W likes the stuffing, but not the pepper flavor.  I started making his in ramekins, so he gets the best of both worlds.  Catering to a picky eater has made me an out of the box thinker. 

I sure have come a long way from my days as a member of the “clean plate club” (my youth).  My family served it and you ate it.  Can you imagine my mom having to make 7 different adjustments to each meal, one for each person’s preferences???

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. This is definitely a fun change with the feta. Wondering about ground lamb in it. This meal always comforts and warms,

  2. Oh the peppers look amazing with that greek filling. I love the flavors of the mint and feta together with the peppers. Makes a nice presentation too

  3. This looks wonderful. I have yet to make stuff bell peppers (no clue why), but always love the idea of them. I bet this would also taste fabulous with ground lamb.

    Thanks for the recipe inspiration! Your blog is beautiful.
