VEGETARIAN STUFFED PEPPERS

I have always been a fan of healthy food. So for this week I will be posting my healthy recipes. Especially when summer is right around the corner and I know we are all beach body ready. I was recently at the store and they had bell peppers for $0.49 each. I knew that this will be a great chance to make some meatless stuffed bell peppers. Plus I had a can of beans that I have been eager to use, so why not for this occasion. This stuffed bell peppers recipe is really delicious! It incorporates protein, starch, and veggies all in one package.
