Mix & Match Stuffed Peppers

I’m so excited to share another Mix & Match recipe with you guys today! We love stuffed peppers in this house – such a simple and nourishing meal that’s also really versatile – perfect for mixing and matching fillings to meet whatever flavors you’re craving.

The process is so simple – just cook veggies and protein, add a grain and seasoning, spoon into pepper halves, and bake until tender. You can also prep and fill them in advance and then bake the peppers during the week for an even faster meal!
