Cookin’ Greens Stuffed Red Peppers

These stuffed peppers are a healthy and hearty lunch or dinner idea. They are a great way to make use of left over rice and/or veggies in your fridge. We especially like this recipe with our Cookin’ Greens Athlete’s Mix with feta cheese for some extra protein. Seasoned simply and topped with parsley- you have yourself a meal fit for a dragon!
