  • Very bland & "tomatoeee" not the best recipe for stuffed peppers i've ever tried. When i make it again, the only thing
    that will remain will be the PEPPERS,RICE & LENTILS.Then I will add,onions,garlic,cumin, curry, nutmeg & garam massala. I will add chicken broth to the tomato sauce.
    & COOK AS.

    I actually re-read this after you posted. I forgot to say add seasonings to taste. Some of my family members are very sensitive to sodium, so I'm just used to always seasoning after the cooking is over. Thanks for reminding me! :)
