Greek florinis, red peppers, are beautiful and sweet. And they also have pale green thin-fleshed ones, which are ideal for this dish. Very different in size from the large bell peppers available in many places. You will need something like the long thin ones, which weigh around 1 1/2 ounces each. You could also use mizithra in place of the feta.

Peppers Stuffed with Feta (Piperies Yemistes me Feta)
Yield:
Serves 4
Level:
Easy
Yield:
Serves 4
Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 4 small red and green sweet peppers, about 1 1/2 ounces each and 4 inches long
  • 7 ounces feta 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, optional

Directions

Cut the tops off the peppers and carefully remove the seeds, keeping the peppers whole. Crumble the feta and stuff tightly into the peppers, then replace the tops. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and saute the peppers over high heat (propping the peppers up against the sides of the skillet so the filling doesn't ooze out), gently turning them over, until they are lightly browned on the outside, and the feta is melted a bit but not running out (the hats may fall off, but replace when serving). Serve whole or cut into thick slices, with the oregano crumbled over the top, if desired.
