The water in a suitable deep saucepan bring to a boil and drop the peeled peppers in it for 2 minutes. Then put the hot peppers in a colander.

The washed and cleaned carrots grate on a coarse grater.

We peel the onions and cut into thin half-rings. Preheat a frying pan with a small amount of oil and fry the onion and carrots in it. Then we wash and clean the root of parsley and celery, cut it into small cubes and at first fry in a separate pan. Thereafter, we mix vegetables and shredded roots, add salt and pepper to the ingredients to taste.

Heat up the oven to 180 degrees in advance. We stuff each pepper with vegetable mixture and cover by caps with a green stem. All peppers are spread into a suitable shape for baking. In a cup, mix the specified amount of tomato sauce and half of a glass of water. By the resulting mixture fill the peppers in the form. We put the dish in the oven for half an hour and bake until done.

The finished dish we place on plates, decorate with fresh herbs and serve with sour cream sauce. The Bulgarian peppers stuffed with vegetables and baked in the oven are ready.
