Halloween Stuffed Peppers

Hello back my dearest readers!

As mentioned in the earlier post, today I am uploading 2 recipes, wow! So, here it is my second one, a main course: Halloween Stuffed Peppers! Really easy to make if you have people coming over tonight or tomorrow :)

By the way, if you do not have peppers, you can use tomatoes as a substitute.


Ingredients

2 orange or red peppers
1 cup of any type of rice
Water
1/2 cup of onion
1/2 cup of pepper
1/2 cup of zucchini
1/2 cup of mushrooms
10 grape tomatoes
1 garlic
Fresh oregano, thyme and mint
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
2. In a pot put water to boil and then add the rice. Let it cook for 15 minutes, depending on the type of rice you add. I used multi-grain Chinese rice.
3. Wash the peppers, cut the top, remove the seeds and wash again. With a sharp knife (Careful! Do not cut yourself!) draw a scary face on the peppers and then cut it off. 


4. In a pot boil some water and add the peppers. Let them boil for 5 minutes. Let it cool.
5. Cut all the vegetables, add the garlic and onion to the pan, then the zucchini. After some minutes, add the mushrooms and finally the peppers. Stir.


6. Add the salt, pepper and the rest of the spices to the vegetables stir.
7. Mix the rice with the vegetables, and add the cheese to the mix.


8. Stuff the peppers with the rice and vegetables mix.
9. Bake the peppers 5 minutes.
10. Take pictures of your cute peppers, serve them, EAT them!





I hope you have a great weekend and that enjoy Halloween.

See you soon,

Puff Pastry Halloween Mummies

Hello everyone!

I hope you are having a great weekend and that you already know which costume you are wearing! (I don't have mine yet..!!)

Tomorrow is Halloween and so I thought of sharing two recipes with all of you. One is a main course, the other one is a dessert. Obviously, let's start from the dessert one...: Puff Pastry Halloween Mummies! Mmmm, it already sounds delicious.



Ingredients

1 sheet of puff pastry
Some water
Jam/Fruit/Peanut butter/Chocolate spread
1 egg
Cane sugar/cinnamon (optional)
M&M's/Skull candies


Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
2. Roll the puff pastry, prick the base gently, you can do so using a fork.
3. Cut 6 rectangles, then choose 3 of them to cut parallel lines, about 1cm apart.

4. Cut parallel lines, about 1cm apart.
5. Fill in the rectangles with jam, chocolate spread, fruit or whatever you like.



6. Paint with water the edges of the 3 remaining rectangles and then place a line at the top and bottom of each rectangle. Use your fingers to press slightly to seal.
7. Then place the remaining lines on top of the rectangle, making it look like a mummy. Remember to leave some space because once it is baked, the mummies eyes will be placed on it.



7. Egg wash the puff pastry using a pastry brush.
8. Sprinkle some cane sugar and/or cinnamon on top and bake it for approximately 20-25 minutes.



9. Once baked, let it cool and so then, add 2 skulls or M&M's per mummy (these will be their eyes! :-o )
10. Bite it, too many times, until there is no mummies left!






 Look! They even sleep in tombs, haha!




Second recipes coming soon.

Have a great weekend and an amused Halloween. Stay safe loves!

Hugs and bites!

Witch Miriam, xx
