Recipe: Chushki Burek

Don't ask my why my first Canadian post is about food, but...
There are endless versions of Chushki Burek which is a Bulgarian "Stuffed Peppers". To prepare them (my version) we will need:
  • 4 green bell peppers
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • 2 bunches of flat leaf parsley
  • 300gr feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • sweet paprika, freshly grounded black pepper and salt
First, we need to boil the green peppers in a large souse pan for approximately 5 minutes, until they are soft. Then, split them in half, deseed (remove the seeds), clean and leave to dry.
While the green peppers are in water, finely chop everything else (including red peppers) and mix it with spices and olive oil.
Finally, fill in the halfs with the mixture and bake it at 180C for approximately 30 minutes.
