Honey What's For Dinner?

Stuffed Red Peppers

This is my tweak on a recipe from my favorite cookbook.
 It is high in fiber, low in calories and very healthy.

I love red bell peppers they are sweet, juicy and colorful.  They're packed with important nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin B6, folic acid, thiamine and beta carotene.  Research shows that red bell peppers contain higher levels of nutrients than their green counterparts.

I was so happy to see them on sale at the grocery store. 

I purchased three large peppers, which is enough to feed my small family of three including leftovers.
My husband had a Great Idea! to use the leftover rice to make a burrito for lunch the next day.

 Favorite Cookbook

 My tweaking of the recipe:

I used red bell peppers and cut them in half, used Baby Bella mushrooms instead of meat.
{ My husband does not eat meat.}

I used crushed tomatoes instead of whole. Just my preference.  {I don't like the chunks}
Used brown rice {healthier} instead of white.
