    Stuffed Peppers With Feta, Pecans and Cherry Tomatoes

    Our dry, hot summer here in the Midwest produced a bumper crop of peppers of all shapes and sizes. You couldn?t swing Wilbur Scoville around at my farmers market without knocking over an overflowing bin of banana peppers or scattering a pile melrose peppers across the grass. This recipe is a simple late-summer side dish I concocted to make use of the bounty. I used round of Hungary peppers here, which look sort of like small, squat, deeply ridged red bell peppers. They have a deep, sweet flavor, like red bell pepper concentrated. If you can?t find them, substitute pimento peppers or small red bell peppers ? but you will probably need more stuffing to fill them.

    7 round of Hungary peppers, or small red bell peppers
    1/2 C pecans
    6 oz feta cheese, preferably goats? milk
    1 C quartered cherry tomatoes
    1 T fresh chopped parsley
    1 T olive oil
    salt and black pepper to taste

    Cut the tops off the peppers as if you?re carving a pumpkin. Use your fingers or a spoon to remove the seeds and ribs from inside the peppers.

    While you are cleaning the peppers, place your pecans in a dry skillet and toast in your wood oven, tossing occasionally, until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Break the feta into small chunks and place in a bowl. Add the cherry tomatoes, parsley and olive oil. Roughly chop the pecans and add them to the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine.

    Stuff the mixture into the cavities of the peppers up to the top. Transfer your peppers to a baking dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake in your wood oven until the peppers are just beginning to get tender, about 10-15 minutes depending on the temperature of your oven. Remove the foil and allow the peppers to continue cooking until the filling is bubbly and golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and serve. I really can?t think of much this wouldn?t taste good alongside, from burgers to bass, so go ahead and make some the next time you?ve got your oven fired up, no matter what else is on the menu.
