A number of a family members have restricted dietary needs, so I love choosing recipes that are suitable for many people and my version of Stuffed Peppers is vegetarian. However, keep in mind that MorningStar Farms® products are not only for vegetarians – they are for everyone! They’re delicious, flavorful and convenient. This recipe for Stuffed Peppers is quick and easy to make and I love that it’s the perfect entree for so many of my upcoming gatherings: Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

I have been trying to focus on a plant-based diet recently as the health benefits of fruits & vegetables have been well-documented. However, when one is limiting meat, it’s important to find ways to consume enough protein. With MorningStar Farms® products, getting adequate protein is easy. In fact, MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ contain an impressive 9 grams of protein.

During a recent trip to Walmart, I picked up two of my family’s favorite MorningStar Farms® products: the Grillers® Crumbles™ and the Steak Strips.
