zeytinyagli biber dolma(stuffed bell pepper in olive oil)

Green pepper is commonly used but
I love to put all colored pepper together!
My mom used to stuff a few tomatoes too!

Brightly colored bell pepper, whether green,
red, orange or yellow are excelent souce of
vitamin C & A and very powerfull antioxidants.

8 green peppers or colored bell peppers
(suitable for stuffing)
1 1/2 cup rice
2 onions (finelly chopped)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon mint
1 tablespoon pine nuts
2 tablespoon currant
1 bunch dill

2 teaspoon sugar
1 cup water
fresh lemon juice

Put the olive oil, onions in a pan
Cook untill the color of the onions change
Add chopped tomatoes. Stir gently until the tomatoes wilt
Add rice, water, pine nuts, black pepper, sugar,
salt, mint, dill and cook for 15 minutes
Remove from heats
Cut off the top of the peppers and remove all seeds
Stuff the peppers (not to stiff)
Add water, salt and cook until rice is soften
Remove from the heat
Serve in room temprature
or after refrigerate if you can wait ;)

tip: goes great with fresh lemon juice also ,
you can add mussell (15 edible) to stuffing. yummmm!
