Vegan Stuff Bell Peppers

Last week I decided to try my luck with stuffed bell peppers. This may be surprising to some but I have never ate stuffed bell peppers.


I love bell peppers. I seen several people share stuffed bell pepper recipes online but I never thought to make them. For my stuffed bell peppers I wanted to treat it like a taco. So I used ingredients that may be found in tacos.


Bell Pepper are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. They are an excellent source for Vitamin C and carotenoids. One bell pepper contains 169% of the daily recommended serving of Vitamin C. Bell peppers also contain iron, and the combination of both the vitamin c and iron helps with the absorption of iron. Iron is beneficial to the body because it helps eliminate iron deficiency illnesses like anemia. Bell Peppers are low in calories at 31 calories per 3.5 ounces. They are hydrating to the body, containing 92% water. Bell peppers are beneficial to the body, and finding more ways to incorporate them into your diet can be a benefit to your overall health.
