Gluten-free Hungarian stuffed peppers17

Stuffed peppers are an indispensable part of Hungarian cuisine. Many of us would like to believe that we have been preparing it for hundreds of years, depending on the region, and putting it on the table for the family’s enjoyment. We are wrong: this Hungarian dish, which is considered traditional, is of Serbian/Aryan origin according to legend, but they are said to have learned it from the Turks. The dish known as stuffed peppers or tomato meatballs, which is barely 100 years old, is the result of their wild marriage.
And of course it is a favorite of our family, especially my husband’s. ūüíē
I indicated that it’s gluten-free because it needs flour and the ingredients have to be very selective to make sure everything is gluten-free (bouillon cubes, tomato puree).

Ingredients for 4 people

200 g rice

For tomato sauce:
400 g concentrated tomatoes
olive oil
4 tablespoons gluten-free flour
50 grams chopped leeks
1 teaspoon salt
1 liter of power soup

For stuffed peppers:
300 g minced meat
4 larger peppers
olive oil
50 g chopped leeks
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper
2 eggs

Preparation

I prepared the rice first, I cooked it halfway and then rinsed it.

Since I didn’t have broth, I had to make it at the beginning, because I was going to add more of it during cooking.

I heated the oil and fried the flour in it. I added half the power soup, cooked it for a few minutes, then came the tomato puree, leeks and salt. I lowered the heat and cooked for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile I prepared the peppers. I washed them, cut off the stems and cut out the center.

I took a pan that was just a bit bigger than needed for the peppers, to have some space for any left-over stuffing.¬† It’s important that the pan isn’t much bigger, otherwise the sauce won’t cover the peppers when cooking.

I lightly fried the leeks for the stuffed peppers in olive oil. I put it on the cooled rice with the other ingredients. I mixed it thoroughly. The original recipe has pork in it, but we are allergic to it, so I made it with chicken breast, which is why the meat doesn’t show up as much in the rice.

I stuffed the peppers. It’s important to fill the peppers all the way through, because if you leave the end empty, it’s not pretty when you serve it, it will collapse. You shouldn’t overfill either, because the half-cooked rice will swell and that will cause the pepper to crack. I left out some filling, formed them into dumplings and put them between the peppers.
In the meantime, I made the tomato sauce and poured it on top. If it’s too thick, you’ll need to dilute it with some more power soup. After boiling, I put a lid on it and reduced the temperature so it was just slightly boiling. You have to be careful not to burn it, but don’t stir it, otherwise the stuffed peppers will fall apart. You can loosen them by joggling the pan while they cook. Occasionally top up the sauce by adding more left-over power soup, so the tomato sauce always covers the stuffed peppers and dumplings.

There are regions where they do not serve any side-dish. Some serve it with freshly baked bread. In my country, I was taught, boiled potatoes must be prepared as a side dish, and the potatoes are cut into strict lengths. ūüėÄ

After 30-40 minutes, the stuffed peppers were ready. I served them with lots of sauce and potatoes. Some people eat the peppers, others just the stuffing. My kitchen was filled with an old, familiar smell, like in the old days in the village when my grandmother used to make them. ūüíó

The family has always loved pizza. When I first found out I had celiac disease, I thought about how many delicious things we would have to give up. Then and there, 3 years ago, I also bewailed the pizza, one of the family favourites. Of course, in time I found out that this was not the case at all. ūüėä I’ll never forget the joy of the first time I put it on the table gluten and lactose free. Having four children, there was never silence at family meals, although we never tried to be silent. But it was a good sign when I put something on the table and after a few minutes there was only silence.
These times I would say:
“Sooo?”
The answer was, “Mum, can’t you see? We are eating! It’s delicious! ūüėć Even gluten free.” ūüėä

3.5 dl water

I coated the bottom of the pizza pans with oil, took the dough in four portions and flattened them with oiled hands on the bottom of the pizza pans. I set the oven to dogh-rise, for those who don’t have this program set the oven to 30-40 C, put warm water in the bottom of the oven and put the doughs to rise for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile I made the pizza sauce, I put a teaspoon of salt on the garlic. I cut the leeks into very thin slices and fried them in a little oil. I added half of the tomato sauce and stir-fried it all together, and mixed in the other half of the salted garlic.

I added the garlic tomato juice, spices and chopped tomatoes to the boiling sauce. My tomato puree was quite thick, so I added a little water to cook the tomato chunks. It is ready when it thickens nicely and the tomato pieces are no longer quite visible.

Half of our family is intolerant to tomatoes so I made pizzas with yoghurt topping for those who can’t eat tomato. I mixed sour cream with garlic powder. I chopped it up, prepared the ones I’d like to top the pizzas with.

After 20 minutes I took the dough out of the oven, it was starting to rise nicely.

I used three different flavours on one pizza. I slathered the pizza sauce first, then the toppings, then I sprinkledput grated cheese on the top.

I put it back in the oven to rise for another 20 minutes.

After the time was up, I set the oven to 200 degrees and baked the pizzas for 20 minutes. The one at the top was nicely browned by this time, I took that one out. I set the oven to toast (if you don’t have this program, set it to a much higher temperature) and the next pizza was baked in 3-4 minutes. I put the bottom two pizzas higher up on the pan holder, and toasted them, taking into account who prefers it toasted or less crispy.

Mindig is szerette a csal√°d a pizz√°kat. Mikor kider√ľlt a c√∂li√°kia akkor elsŇĎre azt gondoltam, hogy mennyi minden finoms√°gr√≥l kell majd lemondanunk. Akkor √©s ott, 3 √©ve, elsirattam a pizz√°t, a csal√°d egyik nagy kedvenc√©t is. Persze idŇĎvel kider√ľlt, hogy ez egy√°ltal√°n nem igy van. ūüėä Sosem felejtem azt a boldogs√°got, amikor elŇĎsz√∂r tettem az asztalra glut√©n √©s lakt√≥zmentesen. N√©gy gyerek mellett sosem volt csend a csal√°di √©tkez√©sekn√©l, b√°r nem is t√∂rekedt√ľnk erre. De az m√°r j√≥ jel volt, ha az asztalra tettem valamit √©s p√°r perc m√ļlva csak a cs√∂ndet lehetett hallani. Megsz√≥laltam ilyenkor:
– Naaa?
Jött is válasz:
– Anyuci nem l√°tod? Esz√ľnk! Finom! ūüėć Glut√©nmentesen is. ūüėä

A pizzas√ľtŇĎk alj√°t bekentem olajjal, a t√©szt√°t n√©gy fel√© vettem √©s olajos k√©zzel ellapogattam a s√ľtŇĎk alj√°n.

K√∂zben elk√©sz√≠tettem a pizzasz√≥szt, a fokhagym√°ra tettem egy mokk√°skan√°l s√≥t. A p√≥r√©hagym√°t nagyon v√©kony szeletekre v√°gtam, kev√©s olajon megs√ľt√∂ttem. Hozz√°adtam a paradicsomsz√≥sz fel√©t √©s √∂sszes√ľt√∂ttem, a m√°sik fel√©be belekevertem a s√≥s fokhagym√°t.

A forr√°sban l√©vŇĎ sz√≥szhoz kevertem a fokhagym√°s paradicsoml√©t, a fŇĪszereket, az apr√≥ra v√°gott paradicsomot. Az √©n paradicsomp√ľr√©m el√©g sŇĪrŇĪ volt, ez√©rt √∂nt√∂ttem hozz√° egy kis vizet, hogy a paradicsom darabok is megfŇĎjenek. Akkor k√©sz, ha sz√©pen besŇĪrŇĪs√∂dik √©s a paradicsom darabok m√°r nem nagyon l√°tszanak.

Mivel n√°lunk a csal√°d fele intoler√°ns a paradicsomra ez√©rt joghurtos felt√©ttel k√©sz√≠tem azoknak akik nem ehetik meg. √Ėsszekevertem a tejf√∂lt a fokhagymaporral. √Ėsszev√°gtam, elŇĎk√©sz√≠tettem azokat amikkel a pizz√°k tetej√©t meg szeretn√©m pakolni.
