2 Orange Peppers ( or more depending on how many you are cooking for)
2 cups of rice
A handful grated cheese
Enjoy the Halloween tradition of the jack o lantern without all the effort of carving a pumpkin!
Begin by cutting off the top off the pepper and scooping out all the seeds and contents to leave a hollow and empty middle. Using a washable, non toxic whiteboard marker draw a face onto the surface of your pepper, with triangle eyes and a zig zag shaped mouth. Get a sharp knife and careful use it to slice out the marked pieces. Because the pepper is soft, the knife should glide through easily. To make the stuffing for inside the pepper, first cook approximately two cups of rice - 1 cup equating to enough for one jack o lantern. In a mixing bowl, mix the cooked rice with with chopped mushroom, tomato, oregano and cheese or any other fillings of your choice. ( if vegan leave out cheese.) Carefully stuff the peppers with the rice mixture and cook for 20-25 minutes. Ensure not to cook for too long or peppers may burst.
