My dad loves stuffed peppers and this is the healthy kidney friendly dialysis patient friendly way of making them! He gets to have one of his favorite foods, enjoy the great taste and still remain faithful to the diet he needs in order for the dialysis to be beneficial! Found this at davita.com and just tweaked seasonings a bit
