      I used 3 green peppers and 1 purple for this recipe. I wanted to make this non-dairy, so made it as directed but did not include the cheese. It was bland and a little dry, so I whipped up some vegan "cheese" and it really improved the dish significantly. The sunflower seeds were great in this. Good way to use up the extra bell peppers in the fridge, but I'll probably continue to try other veggie stuffed pepper recipes to find the best one for us. I was glad I tried this recipe though. Thank you for posting - it is nice to see a veggie variation that does not include some type of fake meat.

      These stuffed peppers were incredible. I've made a lot of stuffed pepper recipes, but this one was my family's favorite. The kids couldn't get enough! Made for PAC. Thanks for the yummy recipe!
