Vegetable-Stuffed Peppers

I like to mix things up and make meatless main dishes for a change of pace. This one has become a monthly mainstay for my family. Fill green peppers with a flavorful combination of cooked rice, kidney beans, corn and onions. —Sandra Allen, Austin, Texas

    If you say it's Veggie stuffed peppers then make it just that. Only thing I kept in this recipe is the pepper. I put raw cauliflower in blender and grated to resemble rice. Added chopped zucchini, yellow squash and turnips. Used fresh corn off the cob, diced red peppers, onion, 1 clove of garlic. Saluted all veggies minus cauliflower rice & green pepper till denté. Add cumin, cyanne chili pepper, salt pepper to taste. Tossed in small can of diced tomatoes and stirred in "rice". Stuff peppers and grilled for 8-10 min. I make this in the m fall winter cooking for 2-3 hrs on low in crock pot. Now THIS is a veggie stuffed pepper.

    I make a recipe similar to this, but mine has black beans instead of the kidney beans and yellow hominy instead of the corn. Either way, this recipe makes a very good meal.My finishing touch is placing one nacho-sliced jalapeno on top of each stuffed green pepper.
