Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers in a garlic mushroom sauce. This is my go to with or without the mushrooms when I have leftover rice. It gets eaten up pretty quick, every adult eats a whole one and the kids usually eat half of one.

5-6 peppers
1 lb ground beef, lamb, turkey or chicken
1-2 cups cooked brown rice, we don't eat white here and my rice has mixed vegetables in it
5 tbs tomato paste
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1/8 cup dried onions
2 tbs garlic powder
1/8 cup olive oil
1 tbs harrisa if you like it to have some kick

2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 large red onion diced
1 head of garlic minced
1 tomato roughly chopped
4 tbs tomato paste
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 ts cumin
1 ts  paprika
1 ts coriander
2 tbs harrisa if you like heat in your sauce
3 tbs chopped fresh cilantro for a garnish
olive oil

Make the stuffing while you have the onions, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, and spices sauteing. Just toss all the stuffing in a bowl and mix it together, don't get grossed out be tasting a pinch for salt and pepper. I don't add eggs to my filling, but you can if you like it, I find it makes the filling kinda hard which I don't like much. Stuff the cleaned peppers.
Add 2 cups of water, tomato paste and taste for salt/pepper to the onions. Stir it well. Place the stuffed peppers on top. Make little meat balls with ant leftover stuffing and add to the pot. Place in a preheated 375 oven for an hour to a hour in a half. Garnish with cilantro.
