Green Peppers are one of those vegetables that taste great raw or cooked. I like all colors of peppers, green, red, orange, and yellow, as a raw vegetable used in salads, or with dips. I also would like to share this recipe for peppers served hot, as a main course, or as a side dish. Peppers, like cabbage rolls, may be stuffed with meat or vegetable stuffing, so I selected the rice/mushroom stuffing for this recipe.
Every time I see a ready assembled vegetable platter at a grocery store, just to pick up and go to a party, I cringe at its cost. I think it mostly reflects the price of labor, rather than the value of the veggies.
It doesn’t take a culinary genius to cut up raw vegetables, and to arrange them on a platter.
If you like stuffed peppers, but are looking for a healthier grain, rather than white rice, Brown Rice, Quinoa, or Bulgur, are great substitutions.
