Yes please. Does this not look like the perfect dinner? It’s super simple to throw together and tastes divine. Not intentionally I’ve been discovering quite a few vegetarian meals. Surprisingly I haven’t even missed the meat in them. This is no different. It’s absolutely amazing on its own. Quite frankly I love any excuse to fire up the grill. The grill just adds that special touch to foods that you can’t get any other way. I’ve also learned that I’m a HUGE fan of fresh basil. Definitely adding that to the garden this year for sure. All of these flavors meld so well together, you will love it!

Ingredients
  1. 4 large bell peppers, any color
  2. 1-2 tbsp. coconut oil
  3. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1 onion, finely diced
  5. 2 c. cooked brown rice
  6. 1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
  7. 2 tbsp. grated Romano cheese
  8. Fresh basil
  9. Fresh Mozzarella
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill on high setting. In a large pan heat coconut oil until hot.
  2. On medium-high heat saute garlic and onions until translucent; about 5 minutes. Add rice, tomatoes, Romano cheese, and basil.
  3. Stir occasionally until heated through; about 5-7 minutes. Wash each pepper and cut in half, removing seeds and veins. Stuff each pepper evenly with rice filling and top with fresh mozzarella*.
  4. Grill on medium heat about 10 minutes.
Notes
  1. [My 2 Cents]
  2. *You can stir in the fresh mozarella with the rice filling as you stuff each pepper instead of topping each stuffed pepper. I tried it both ways and probably prefer it mixed together - it gets more melty gooey cheesy that way.
