Stuffed Green Peppers

It all started with salad.

I was shopping for salad ingredients when bright green peppers caught my eye. I hadn’t cooked Stuffed Green Peppers in awhile and I don’t know why.  They’re easy to make, delicious and healthy. If you’re a vegetarian, substitute a beef alternative and I bet this dish will still be delish.  Next time, I might add more spices and golden raisins.  There was enough rice to serve as a side.  So yummy!
