Be Stitched Baking {Vegan Stuffed Bell Peppers}

Happy New Year!!!  2013 is going to be a great year!

Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers

Time for some comfort food!  To make this meal healthier, I removed the sugary tomato sauce and red meat that usually is stuffed in bell peppers.  I replaced them with black beans, zucchini, and carrots.  Wild rice replaced white rice, and I cooked the rice in vegetable broth instead of water for more flavor.  These little guys are packed with nutrients from their pretty colors!
