  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Add all of your stuffing ingredients together into a bowl. You can even substitute some (or all) of the grain with tofu, tempeh or some sort of meat--ground turkey works really well.

  3. Combine in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Do a quick taste test and adjust the seasoning, be it salt, pepper, or lemon juice if necessary.

  4. Line up your pepper halves in some sort of a baking pan and stuff each one.

  5. Bake them in the oven for about 30 minutes . Some folks like to add extra cheese to the top of the stuffed peppers; this helps hold things together. When a fork easily pierces the skin of the pepper they are done.
