Recipe: Venison and Mushroom Stuffed Bell Peppers
- 1 pound venison mince
- 4 large bell peppers (any color)
- 1 cup mixed mushrooms, finely chopped
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup cooked quinoa or rice
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Fresh parsley, for garnish
Preparing the Bell Peppers:
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. If needed, trim the bottoms slightly to make them stand upright.
- In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the bell peppers for 3-4 minutes to soften them. Then, drain and set them aside.
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chopped onion, sautéing until softened.
- Add the wild venison mince and cook until browned. Break it apart with a spoon as it cooks.
- Stir in the chopped mushrooms and cook for another 3-4 minutes until they release their moisture.
- Add the cooked quinoa or rice, diced tomatoes, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to meld the flavors.
- Remove the skillet from heat and fold in half of the shredded mozzarella cheese.
For Assembling and Baking:
- Stuff each blanched bell pepper with the wild venison and mushroom mixture.
- Place the stuffed peppers in a baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on top.
- Cover the dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is bubbly.
- Garnish the wild venison and mushroom stuffed bell peppers with fresh parsley.
- Serve hot, and savor the wild flavors and ethical sourcing that define this exceptional dish.
