How to make rice stuffed peppers recipe in air fryer

  1. First, dedicate yourself to preparing the rice. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and boil the rice for 2 minutes less than indicated on the package.
  2. While the rice is cooking, finely chop the onion and brown it in a pan with a drizzle of oil. Once tender, add the tomato purée, a pinch of salt, some chilli pepper if you like and a few basil leaves and cook for 10-15 minutes .
  3. Clean the peppers by first washing them under running water and then removing the cap, seeds and white filaments.
  4. Once the rice is ready, drain it and cool it under running cold water.
  5. Mix the rice, the tomato sauce, the grated cheese and the diced provolone in a bowl.
  6. Use the mixture to stuff the peppers and, as they are ready, place them in the air fryer basket with the cut side up.
