Meatless Monday featuring Black Bean Stuffed Peppers


Meatless Monday is a movement started with the idea of beginning each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meatless meal alternative. It’s a great way to experiment with different meal options that provide the same nutrients as meat, while cutting down on meat consumption and helping improve your personal health and the environment. To participate in Meatless Monday, here’s our recipe for Black Bean Stuffed Peppers that are stuffed with nutrients!
