Need a Stuffed pepper presentation

I am trying to create an elegant presentation for a, very special, Stuffed Pepper entree.

So far I am thinking about an "open faced presentation; with sour cream and herb garnish". But I need a second vegetable that would dress up the plate enough to impress my guests and compliment the stuffed pepper?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Pattypan squash would go well.

Two recipes come to mind, Fire and Ice relish or Sweet Hot Corn Relish.

Both recipes came from a wonderful home cook named Marion Cunningham.

I created a filling using Lentils, pork (small cubes; browned), chopped: onions, celery, carrots, and garlic, Indian spices and raisins.

Potato and pea salad would go nicely with your Indian flavors. Then a chutney and your plate will be complete. I found this that sounds good: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...d-8586965.html

Thanks, that sounds like a great idea, but I may have to use frozen peas

Thanks

Some sort of grain would go well with it. Curried couscous salad or a rice pilaf with vegetables mixed in, such as mushrooms, green peas, scallions, etc., plus sliced almonds or another type of nut.
