Healthy Slow Cooker Stuffed Green Peppers

Each week, we try to find a new recipe to break up our dinner monotony. Recently, we broke out our crock pot and our copy of Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly and tried some Stuffed Green Peppers. They turned out great! Not only were they delicious, but they were also filling, easy to make, and healthy, too!

I made a few tweaks to the recipe–it’s a great recipe to modify according to what you have on hand. I could only find giant green peppers, so I only made four instead of six. I also threw in some shredded carrots and sliced mushrooms that we happened to have in the fridge. And I left out the mustard because my husband doesn’t like it and the pimentos because I don’t like them. Despite the additions and omissions, the flavor was full and savory and they held together great. It took about 15 minutes to prep, and then I stuck them in the crock pot and let it do the work. Take a look:
