Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Spring is here, and makes it easier than ever to eat the rainbow! In this recipe, we will prepare a colorful dish that can be eaten either as a side or on its own. The stuffing uses vegetarian “meat” and flavors that make it hard to tell the difference from a non-vegetarian meal.
