Number of Servings: 4


    2 large bell peppers, sliced in half lengthwise and emptied out
    2 cups cooked grains or vegetarian protein (rice, quinoa, couscous, lentils, tempeh, etc.)
    1 cup tomatoes, chopped
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    1/2 cup fresh basil (or other leafy herbs like parsley, cilantro, etc.)
    1/4 cup walnuts
    1/3 cup goat cheese
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste


1.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2.Add all of your stuffing ingredients together into a bowl. You can even substitute some (or all) of the grain with tofu, tempeh or some sort of meat--ground turkey works really well.
3.Combine in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Do a quick taste test and adjust the seasoning, be it salt, pepper, or lemon juice if necessary.
4.Line up your pepper halves in some sort of a baking pan and stuff each one.
5.Bake them in the oven for about 30 minutes. Some folks like to add extra cheese to the top of the stuffed peppers; this helps hold things together. When a fork easily pierces the skin of the pepper they are done.
