Vegetarian Baked Stuffed Red Bell Peppers
I found these on an internet website. The sunflower seeds make these taste wonderful, you will not miss the meat at all."I loooved these stuffed bell pappers. I love healthy AND delicious eating... So this is the best of both worlds. I made them for my boyfriend (who is typical when it comes to the way men eat) and even he wants me to make this again" - Jmhthelerve
