Anna Sultana's Bzar Ahdar Mimli II - Stuffed Green Peppers, Maltese Style


Okay.. you know what's coming.
Ma's recipe for Stuffed Green Peppers with meat is great.
But of course Ma had more than one way to stuff bell peppers.
And a good thing, too.

Some people object to eating meat.
Especially as a stuffing in a vegetable.
No problem.
Ma had a recipe for Bżar Aħdar Mimli that is meatless.

The peppers in this recipe are fried on their sides, after they have been stuffed.
And, yes, you can use the red, yellow and green bell peppers that are sold together 
and called traffic light peppers.


                        Bżar Aħdar Mimli

2 Tablespoons olive oil
