Traditional Greek food
16 green wide peppers or tomatoes
20 tbsp rice
2 onions peeled and chopped (in as many pieces as you could)
handful of parsley,thyme and basil
1/2 tea sp oregano
2 tea sp salt
1/4 tea sp pepper
6 tb sp olive oil
1/2 of glass tomato sauce(you may use fresh tomatoes)
In an cooking utensil (pan) add rice ,onion,herbs and all the other ingredients and 2 spoons olive oil. Mix them all.
After you have washed peppers and tomatoes, open them with a knife and \"dig\" them.Throw the seeds from the peppers, but keep the inner flesh of tomatoes. This flesh you may add it, in the mixture i have already said before.This will give extra taste to your food and moreover will give to it antioxidants, (lycopene), useful to our immune system.Anyway .....
Use a spoon to stuff the peppers and the tomatoes, and place them in a roasting pan, one by one and side by side.It is preferable to lay them in a pyrex, but if you dont have such an utensil its ok.
The next step is to add 2 glasses of water and the olive oil.
Then put the food in a preheat oven and cook it for 1 hour (190 c)
