Green peppers always look so pretty stuffed, and I don't want any meat tonight.Also,I like to try things that are different,so I think I'll use a yellow squash, some onion, brown rice, eggplant;and top it off with some freshly grated cheese. Looking at the recipe Jennifer Bass posted and I wanted to try that but didn't have meat or fresh cilantro. Her recipe inspired me to throw together what I have on hand!
