Wow, what a great recipe! You're definitely right about vegetarians loving it and I think meat eaters would enjoy it as well. The lemon and mint add a nice flavour that I wouldn't have normally included in stuffed peppers. They were super easy to make as well and very colourful. Many, many thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper!

Terese, you were right! We (vegetarians) loved it! The flavors were absolutely delicious and it's now one of our very favorites. Thanks so much!

This is DELICIOUS Terese! It was a winner with the family. We're not vegetarians, so we had it with lamb chops. I had one leftover that I gave to an old Greek friend...he was so impressed, said it was just like his mother used to make!
