My wife and I signed up for a "box a week" program from one of the local organic farms here and we've been scratching our heads wondering what to do
with summer squash as neither of us really eat squash that much. I'm going to try this for sure.
I'd probably toss my stuffed peppers on there as a side:
1 large hollowed fresh bell pepper (preferably green with all seeds and seams removed leaving a nice hole)
1 clove of fresh garlic or a few garlic scapes.
1 twig of fresh rosemary, chopped lightly (just the leaves)
1 twig of fresh Thyme (just the leaves)
1 fresh onion (preferably not a sweet onion)
Cracked black peppercorns
Rock sea salt
i basically chop all the ingredients up and mix the spices in, then the fun part... (I prefer unsalted butter)
Then you lightly brush the inside of the pepper with olive oil, also lightly brushing the outside of the pepper. Now cram all that goodness in the
center of the green pepper until it's about half full, then take a small sube of butter (maybe half a teaspoon? I just eye it) and place it inside,
then cover it up as you finish stuffing the pepper.
If you are grillling, just toss it on the grill until the green pepper starts to get a little soft, then carefully move it to the top rack until the
onions are soft enough for you.
If you are doing it in an oven a little cheese on top is wonderful.
When i plate it I usually slice it into quarters and let them fall naturally so the onions and such come flowing out. Always a crowd pleaser
