Stuffed peppers anyone?🌶️ 🌶️ ⁠ I made this recipe for my lunch this week and bae tried to steal it from me (him: "is that all for you"? Me: "yes, go away"….LOL JK I gave him a bite 😜). Am I the only one with a partner who is always trying to eat their food!?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I love this recipe because YOU helped me create it. A couple of weeks ago in IG stories, I asked you to vote between a series of ingredients (remember that?) and this is the final product you came up with. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Trust me, the whole family will love this one (so will you because it's ready in 1, 2, 3). Here's what you need and what you do:⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Ingredients:⁠⠀ 3 tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto⁠⠀ 2 tablespoons olive oil⁠⠀ 1 can of white beans⁠⠀ 2 cups of cooked rice (any will do)⁠⠀ 3 bell peppers (choose whatever colors you like)⁠⠀ 1 can of diced tomatoes⁠⠀ Parmesan cheese OR nutritional yeast for a vegan version⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Directions:⁠⠀ 🌶️ Chop peppers in half, de-seed and drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper, place in a baking sheet⁠⠀ 🌶️ Cook at 350F for 25-30 minutes⁠⠀ 🌶️ While peppers are cooking, cook rice according to package directions (I added veggie broth and olive oil for extra flavor)⁠⠀ 🌶️ Once the rice is done cooking, mix in beans, tomatoes, and pesto.⁠⠀ 🌶️ Stuff peppers w/ mixture, then add cheese or nutritional yeast, any herbs, salt, pepper and spices.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enjoy! ⠀ ⠀ 🖤- Jess
