Tips For Making Polish Stuffed Bell Peppers

Make It Vegan If You Want.

You can either use minced pork, beef, or soya mince. I went for the last option, as I try to reduce the meat in my diet. The taste is just as good!

Serve It With The Garlic Sauce.

Stuffed peppers taste best with Polish garlic sauce (follow the link to get my recipe).

Use Any Bell Pepper You Want.

You can choose red, yellow, orange, or green bell pepper to make your dish.

Add Some Veggies If You Want.

The basic stuffed peppers stuffing contains rice, minced meat, garlic, tomatoes, and onion. You can other veggies, such as:

  • mushrooms
  • champignons
  • zucchini (courgette)
  • carrot
  • parsley root
  • celery root

You Can Use Fresh Tomatoes Instead Of The Canned.

Remember to peel them first, remove the green parts, and dice them. For this Polish stuffed peppers recipe, you will need about 2 lbs / 1 kg of fresh tomatoes.
