The place of dolma recipes among olive oil dishes is indisputable in Turkish cuisine. In almost every house, different stuffed dishes are cooked with plain olive oil or optinally with ground beef. In the summer season, peppers and eggplants grow naturally when the sun show itself. Of course, a vegetable which is grown in season is more delicious than a vegetable that is grown in a greenhouse. That's why stuffed eggplants and stuffed peppers are so delicious in summer. In addition, both in summer and winter, stuffed potatoes or stuffed onions can be made. Some women in Anatolia dry the peppers and eggplants which is grown in summer in the sun. The reason for this is to use dried peppers and dried eggplants for stuffing in winter. We often see the stuffed eggplants recipes and stuffed peppers recipes in Gaziantep cuisine. Some women prefer to freeze them by putting capia peppers in the freezer in summer. After thawing some frozen capia peppers they take out of the freezer in the winter, they make the stuffing and serve them to their loved ones.

Of course, it is impossible not to mention the benefits of the capia pepper that is used in the recipe. According to some researchers, the amount of vitamin C contained in capia pepper is much more than lemon. Capia pepper is actually a vegetable belonging to the nightshade family. If you have fresh capia pepper on hand, you can also use this vegetable as a delicious olive oil appetizer recipe. Besides making stuffing with capia peppers, an appetizer can be made by roasting peppers on fire and peeling them off and lastly pouring some olive oil on it. Capia peppers can also be used in salads. Its meaty texture and sweetness add great flavor to your summer salads. Before moving on to our recipe for stuffed capia peppers, let's take a look at the tips of the dish.


Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe Tips

First of all, when choosing bell peppers, you should pay attention to their freshness. If the pepper stalk is green, it means it has been plucked from the pepper branch new. In addition, the pepper should be hard and bright in appearance. Being firm and shiny means that the pepper is fresh. 

If you make the recipe for stuffed capia peppers in the summer, the food will be more delicious as the capia peppers will grow naturally in the sunlight.

Stuffed peppers can also be made by roasting the rice in a separate pan. However, we prefer to cook the rice in the oven, without frying it in a pan, because we think it is more delicious and light.

Instead of capia peppers, summer vegatables such as potatoes, eggplants and onions can also be preferred for stuffing.

If you use lean ground beef in the stuffed peppers, your meal will be lighter.

Your meal will be much more delicious if you use tomato sauce as well, which we make from fresh tomatoes in summer.

You can store the cooked stuffed peppers in the refrigerator and consume easily for 1-2 days.

You can serve stuffed peppers with garlic or plain homemade yogurt, depending on your preference.
