  • Wash the peppers, cut off the top quarter of each. Clean the lid and pods. Cut the lid into small cubes. Peel the onions and finely dice them. Prepare rice in boiling salted water according to the instructions on the packet. Wash and clean the spring onions and cut the light and green parts separately into rings.

Bake the pods on the lower rail in the preheated oven (electric stove: 200 ° C / convection: 175 ° C / gas: level 3) for about 30 minutes. If the surface becomes too dark, cover the surface with a second sheet or aluminum foil.
  • Remove the pods and sprinkle with the remaining spring onions. Serve immediately!
