Here is a way to get your kids to eat their veggies...Roasted bell pepper cups stuffed with creamy rice, broccoli and cheese! This wonderful vegetarian side dish is warm, comforting and filling. Double up and you could even serve this as an entire meal. This dish is hearty, filling and utterly delicious. You may want to make extra because your family and friends are going to be fighting over who gets the last one!
You will first need to turn the bell peppers into little cups that will hold the tasty broccoli rice filling. Cut them in half and scoop out the seeds and ribs inside. Next cook up your rice. Onions and garlic add a savory aspect while smoked paprika and jalapeno add a bit of smoky spice. Adjust the amount of jalapeno to your spicy level. I prefer spicy! But broccoli is the star here. And guess what...your kids are actually going to love it! Finally cream cheese and mozzarella add a ooey gooey creaminess that goes so well with the peppers. Lemon zest will balance out the flavor of all the cheese. Bake off, top with more melted cheese and serve. Just reading this is going to make you hungry!
