Stuffed Green Pepper.....Healthy and Delicious!


Today I picked fresh Green Bell Peppers from my garden which were ready to be harvested! Fresh picked veggies taste so wonderful. As soon as I picked these from the garden, my husband requested to prepare stuffed peppers for the dinner. We enjoyed having these for Dinner with Daal and Chappati. A fulfilling delicious dinner!

Bell pepper is also called Capsicum and comes in different colors including Red, Yellow and Orange. Bell peppers are low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol ,Sodium and is high in Dietary Fiber and many other vitamins.
Bell Pepper stuffed with Spicy Potatoes are delicious to enjoy with dinner or even as snack!
