Big Vegan Love,



  1. Yum! I love stuffed peppers; thanks for posting this variation- I'll try it next time I get some romeros. I once did an Indian version, filled with ginger, chilli, peanuts and coconut, then deep fried in chickpea flour batter. Not as healthy as yours, but very tasty!

    1. That Indian version sounds amazing! I will have to try that next time :-) VVx
