Spinach-Cheese Stuffed jalapeños


Ingredients -
Serves 2

Large fresh jalapeño peppers - 4
bread crumbs- 2 cups
Parmesan Cheese – 1 ½ cups
Spinach fresh- 4 cups, frozen- 2 cups
crushed black pepper- 1tsp
grated ginger- 1tsp

Note- Here I have used large jalapeños which are very mild in taste. If these are not available use red/green/yellow bell pepper. Split them in half length wise, remove the seeds and use. Stuffing has to be adjusted according to the size.

Method-
For stuffing-
In a pan take 1 tbsp of olive oil. When it’s hot add the spinach and ginger and stir fry it on medium heat till the water from spinach evaporates. Now add salt. Allow it to cool naturally. When it cools down, mix 1 cup cheese and 1 cup of bread crumb and crushed black pepper in it. Mix it well.

For jalapeños-
Split jalapenos in half length wise and remove the seeds. In a pan take 1tsp of oil and place the Jalapeños in that. Cover and cook them both the sides for 1-2 min till the color of the Jalapeños become pale. Allow them to cool naturally. Now stuff the Jalapeños with one layer of spinach-cheese mixture, one layer of cheese and one layer of breadcrumbs (this is to avoid the cheese from coming out). Secure the Jalapeños with toothpick. Now take 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and place the jalapenos in that. Cover it and cook it on both the sides for almost 3-4 min. Meanwhile add some more oil in order to avoid them for burning/sticking to the pan. Server hot with crisp salad :)
