Stuffed Green Peppers in a Tomato Base

Green Peppers
Who doesn’t like the colourful, crunchy and juicy taste of capsicum or green peppers? And now research suggests that these peppers may even be good for your health. Did you know that red, yellow or green peppers contain three times more Vitamin C than orange juice? Peppers also contain cancer-fighting properties and may aid in weight loss.
So if you want to experiment with a dish involving peppers, try this one. The juicy taste of capsicum coupled with the subtle flavour of mashed potatoes and tomato gravy will simply leave you asking for more.
You may use any kind of pepper for this recipe: yellow, green or red even though the picture above uses green peppers.
