large bell peppers (red, yellow, or orange)|
garlic cloves, minced
wild rice mix (boxed)
fresh-cut chives or scallions
water or chicken broth
shredded carrots and/or finely chopped shiitake mushrooms (optional, but delicious!)
|:: 1 ::||
If using un-processed wild rice rather than a mix, soak wild rice in water for 2 hours before mixing with long-grain white rice. Ignore this step if using a mix.
|:: 2 ::||
Slice bell peppers in half (remove seeds), chop onions, mince garlic.
|:: 3 ::||
Microwave bell peppers 5 minutes or until soft, then set aside. This can also be done while the filling is cooking if you want the peppers to be warm when served.
|:: 4 ::||
Add cajun seasoning to onion and garlic and sautee until soft.
|:: 5 ::||
Add water/chicken broth, rice mix, and salt; heat until broth reaches a boil.
|:: 6 ::||
Let simmer for 15 minutes or until mixture boils (faster if you cover it).
|:: 7 ::||
Just before removing from heat, stir in spinach and chives/scallions.
|:: 8 ::||
Scoop filling into peppers and serve.
