Green Bell Peppers Stuffed with Maitake Mushrooms

Green Bell Peppers Stuffed with Maitake Mushrooms

Plenty of maitake mushrooms and just a little meat. Low in calories, but very healthy!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Green bell pepper
4
Maitake mushrooms
1 pack
Ground chicken breast
50 g
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Sake
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
To taste

Steps

1. Cut the green peppers up with kitchen scissors. Cut around the stem end of the peppers.
2. The seeds come right out of the peppers with the stem.
3. Break the root ends off the maitake mushrooms with your hands. Shred them into smaller pieces. This is surprisingly easy.
4. Add the ground chicken. There really is just a little bit of chicken compared to the amount of mushrooms.
5. A vegetarian maitake mushroom-only version was delicious too! Add 2 tablespoons of katakuriko instead of the ground chicken.
6. Stuff the mixture into the prepped peppers.
7. Pan fry the stuffed peppers. Heat some sesame oil in a frying pan, put the peppers in stuffed side down and cook until browned. Turn the peppers on their sides, and cook for 4 minutes per side over low heat.
8. When the peppers are cooked all over, they are done. The filling is well flavored so you can eat them without any sauce.
9. A vegetarian maitake mushroom-only version was delicious too! Add 2 tablespoons of katakuriko instead of the ground chicken.
