Recipe by: Barbara Rolls
1 C veggie broth
2/3 C bulgur
4 bell peppers, about 2lbs
1/2 C finely chopped celery
1/4 C chopped scallions
1/2 C diced mushrooms
1/2 C peeled, shredded carrots
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
Bring broth & bulgur to a boil in a 2 quart saucepan, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and put in large bowl.
Preheat oven to 375F
Lightly coat 8×8″ baking dish with cooking spray.
Cut tops off bell peppers, core, remove seeds. Cut a very thin slice off bottom of bell pepper so it will stand upright.
Blanch peppers in a pot of boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove and drain peppers upside down on paper towels.
Combine the remaining ingredients with the bulgur & toss well. Scoop mixture into peppers, and bake upright for 15-20 minutes.
