I am a big meat eater (heck, look at me…).  I am not big on vegetarian fare, but every once in awhile I like to try something new.  I have never made stuffed peppers without some sort of meat… but, my ground turkey was outdated so I decided to try these meatless.  Delicious.  These vegetarian stuffed peppers are definitely going into the lineup at our house… make extras, they are even better the next day!

  1. I made stuffed peppers a couple of weeks ago for the first time in probably a decade. I love this vegetarian recipe and, although like you I am an unapologetic meat eater, I’m going to give it a try!
