Bell Peppers with Brown Rice Stuffing is a simple American dish that adds body, flavour and texture. Using bell peppers, onion and garlic with brown rice is lovely. Also when you add the herbs, it goes up a level. This can be served as a main dish and a side dish with success. However being a vegetarian dish makes this dish good in several ways.
