My mum makes both of those. I know the basics, but I'm not sure what she puts in the stuffings. Rice, some meat and what?Do you make it?

For the stuffed peppers use risotto rice.
With the mushrooms, de-skin them, prick the tops and fry lightly in a dry pan, crumble some blue cheese, dice some pears into very small cubes. mix them together, take the mushrooms off the pan, stuff with the mixture and grill(or ovencook) for around 8 minutes.

Also if you use normal rice with the peppers, cook the rice in chicken stock and skin the peppers. mix the cooked rice with your fav ingredients and herbs. stuff into the peppers and bake for about 12-15 mintues, or until the peppers go soft.

In the words of Gordon Ramsey their vegetarians **** em.

Ive made stuffed peppers on various occasions and its always the same filling ie. vegetarian shite.

You have four basic choices of the main ingredient:

Rice
Cous cous
Potatoe
Pasta

Personally id go with rice, mix in some chicken, veg and spice.

Hey presto.....

Here's how I make stuffed peppers (then I also use the same filling for mushrooms if I have some left over).

Your favorite colored peppers (green, red, yellow or orange)
Cut them in half and clean out the seeds - blanch in boiling water for 5 minutes.
Remove the peppers from the boiling water and cool under cold water to stop cooking.
Set aside in an oiled baking dish until ready to fill.

In frying pan saute one pound of ground meat (beef or turkey)
One finely chopped onion
About one cup of cooked rice (your favorite style)
Add one can of stewed tomatoes (they have a lot of flavor)
Add some spices: like garlic, pepper, taco seasoning; whatever you like

Simmer, covered, for twenty minutes.

Stuff the peppers with the filling. Sprinkle with your favorite shredded cheese.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese is browned.

You can make these a day ahead of time and bake the next day.

Stuffed Mushrooms: Use the extra stuffing to stuff mushrooms. Oil a baking sheet and the outside of the mushrooms and bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Also sprinkle a little cheese on top before baking.

I would just like to add make sure the tomatoes are authentic Italian or something, the cheap ones WILL ruin a good dish.

I agree, but try to find the ones with lower sodium, they are usually loaded with salt...

I make mine with a Mexican flare! I use mince meat (ground beef) with a packet of taco season. I make the rice with tomatoes, chilis, and minced red and green peppers, and corn and then I had some taco season and a dash or two of chili powder (like beef chili powder not the pepper kind). I layer it in the pepper meat, rice, cheese until the top and then I sprinkle some black olives and cheese and bake.

My mom use to make it with more of an italian base, tomato sauce and onions but I like spicy and mexican more :0)
