Paneer Spinach Stuffed Peppers

Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) and spinach with a hint of garlic, is always a hit stuffing!!! I have tried this in a sandwich, stuffed in pasta and even in a quesadilla, today I am sharing the recipe for the same stuffing in small peppers. These sweet peppers along with paneer spinach stuffing, makes your palate so full with flavors. Cheese is totally optional on these, though I baked half batch with cheese and without it.

Sometime back I shared recipe for Mexican Quinoa, you can also try stuffing that in these small sweet peppers. That’s delicious too. There’s an image below for you to have a look, that how appetizing it looks. So basically I shared two recipes instead of one, LOL!!! I hope you try them both and relish them equally.
