When I was looking for something ‘different’ in our recipe box, I came across this one. Haven’t used it in a while, but it is a great addition to the party table. Even if you are just having a few friends over for New Year…this is good!
- 1 red pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 8 oz. cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp. chopped pimento
- 1 tbsp. chopped Italian parsley
- 1 tbsp. finely chopped chives
- pinch of salt
- pinch of white pepper
- 1 tsp. lime juice
- 1 envelope unflavoured gelatin
- 1/2 cup cold water
- Butter lettuce leaves for garnish
Cut off the tops of the peppers, remove the seeds and pith. Wash and pat dry.
In a blender, cream the cottage cheese. Remove and add all the ingredients. Set aside.
Soak the gelatin in cold water to dissolve over a pan of simmering water. When dissolved, add to the cheese mixture, blending to thoroughly combine.
Fill each pepper and chill in the fridge for at least two hours. When ready to put on the table, slice each pepper in 4 thick slices and place on a lettuce leaf.
Who woulda thunk it? haha such fun to entertain.
