Filled peppers - Crete style!

Since I am still longing for summer, I decided to make a dish that we had on Crete this summer: filled peppers with mint and raisins.

This is what you need:
  • Bell peppers
  • Rice
  • Yellow onion
  • Garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • Beans (cannellini beans would probably be best, but we had black beans at home)
  • Crushed tomatoes
  • Mint
  • Pine nuts
  • Raisins

Preheat the oven to 220 °C (425 °F). Chop onion, garlic and fry with pine nuts and beans. Add lemon juice, mint, a little bit of crushed tomatoes, and raisins.

Cut the tops of the bell peppers and fill them with the bean mix. Place them in the oven for about 20 minutes.
