When I decided to return to a vegetarian diet I had to pull out some of my old favorites, you know, the recipes the males in my house won’t eat because, gasp, veggies!

Here’s a simple one I like to do on nights when I’m making rice as a side for the family anyway.

Stuffed Red Bell Peppers

Stuff Peppers1 medium red bell pepper, cut lengthwise

4 tablespoons cooked rice

1 tablespoon chopped green onion

1 tablespoon chopped tomato

1 tablespoon feta cheese

1 tablespoon pine nuts

Mix the rice, onion, tomato, cheese, and pine nuts. Fill the pepper halves. Wrap in foil and cook at 35o for about 20 minutes or until the pepper is cooked through. Makes one serving of approximately 425 calories.

Add a side salad and this is a great low calorie dinner.
