Mummy Stuffed Mini Peppers with Zucchini Noodles

The mummies were the most liked by the parents and kids at my party. They take a bit more preparation to make but are well worth it!

You will need a vegetable spiralizer to make these fun mummies. This is a cheap kitchen tool and you can find one almost anywhere. Amazon has many different varieties to choose from. I have a very basic handheld one and it works very well. If you have kids this is a must have as it makes eating vegetables a lot more fun.

This is what they will look like prior to baking them. If you have older kids this can also be a fun project for them to do. When you are breading the noodles make sure you wipe your hands in between noodles else your batter will get really wet and will not stick to the noodles.

Mummy Stuffed Mini Peppers with Zucchini Noodles

Author: Brittany Sparks

Makes: 40 Mummies

Prep Time 25 min

Cook Time 15 min

Total Time 40 min

Ingredients

  • 20 Mini Bell Peppers, Cut in Half

  • 1 Bag of Spinach (10oz/284g)

  • 1 (8oz/226g) container of Low Fat Cream Cheese

  • ½ Cup Part Skim Ricotta Cheese

  • ½ Cup + 3 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese

  • 1 Tsp Salt

  • ½ Tsp Pepper

  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder

  • 1 Medium Zucchini (try to get a wide one, makes for better noodles)

  • 1 Large Egg, Beaten

  • ½ Cup Breadcrumbs

  • 3 Large Black Olives (for eyes), cut in small pieces

Directions

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Place the spinach a little at a time into boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove to a strainer and press out all the water.

  2. In a food processor place the spinach, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, ½ cup of Parmesan, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Process mixture until combined.

  3. Using a vegetable spiralizer, spiralize the zucchini into noodles. You will want to choose a larger blade setting for the noodles.

  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Get two containers and place the breadcrumbs and 3 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese in one and a beaten egg in the other.

  5. Take the halved mini bell peppers and with a spoon fill them with the spinach mixture. Then take the zucchini noodles and dip in the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumb mixture and wrap around the mini peppers.

  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and the peppers are cooked through.

  7. Cut the olives into small pieces and place two pieces onto each pepper for the eyes.
