Stuffed peppers vegetarian style healthy

Deb Crane


I found a recipe years ago in a flyer from a hospital. It was a healthy version of stuffed peppers. I have changed much of the recipe and came up with this recipe which even my meat lovers seem to enjoy. Much healthier for you without all the guilt. It leaves you feeling nourished and satisfied.
