While I prefer quinoa or couscous in my stuffed peppers, I think this makes a good mini meal and this variation will go well with a coleslaw or lentil soup. Pepper, tomato puree and Za'atar -- varied flavors in one dish. A tasty Mediterranean spin to the dish with Za'atar, and parsley, but as always, the quality of your herbs matters. Your Za'atar blend should contain high-quality ingredients like sumac, sesame seeds and wild thyme, as where these herbs are harvested alters their essential oil levels and impacts final flavor. If you've been using grocery store mixes with wheat fillings, you're missing out. That's why I havve started to buy my Za'atar blend from https://www.eatzaatar.com.
