Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Core and seed the bell peppers. Cut each into six wedges, and place into a resealable plastic bag. Add the garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Toss, seal, and set aside to marinate at least 20 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Stir the goat cheese and lemon pepper seasoning together in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Cook the peppers, skin-side-up on the preheated grill until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Flip the peppers over, and carefully spoon the cheese onto each pepper. Close the lid of the barbecue, and continue cooking until the bottoms are lightly charred and the cheese is warm, 2 to 3 minutes.

I like it with or without the lemon pepper usually do it without. They're even better if you add the vegan sun-dried tomato pesto recipe from this site too!!!! Read More

These were good i love goat cheese. I didn'T measure the lemon pepper very close it's easy to over do it. i recommend serving as a side dish. I'd make this again. Read More

Could I give this 7 stars!!! Oh. my. Heaven. I made these for a dinner party for I had picked a bushel of green peppers at a farm and needed to use them up. They were the first things gone and I could have eaten them all. My steaks were still on the grill and so we were just eating all the sides and my guests said that they were so good they could've had these for the main course! They were tangy with the goat cheese and the tart lemon pepper with the charred grilled pepper was to die for. I made them again for a friend and her husband and he liked them so much he mentioned putting the steak inside and making a pepper steak sandwich! Make them you will love them! Read More

This was a fantastic idea. I used it as a basis for my own variation - caramelized some onions and sauteed some smoked turkey sausage, a little bit extra garlic, and some chopped tomatoes, and mixed together with the goat cheese to make a more substantial filling. Absolutely delicious - thanks so much for the idea! Read More

These are great! I don't have a grill so I just broil in the oven. I have played around and have added feta to the cheese mixture. Last night I added a couple of pepperoni slices to it and kind of made it like a pizza topping. The pepperoni made it kind of like a Greek pizza. I'm thinking of adding some chopped black olives next time. Read More

The char of the grill and the contrast of the cheese is delightful. I used a mixture of feta and goat cheese. The feta adds a nice tartness that we like. Read More

These were a unique dish but there was just no "wow" factor to them. I followed the directions as written with no changes. Four stars for a creative recipe though. Thanks! Read More

This is excellent! I also used feta cheese instead of goat cheese and my husband and I just went crazy for them! It's a great way to do something different with all those peppers from the garden. Read More
