How to #testkitchen: Stuffed Red Peppers

Today in the #testkitchen is a recipe for Stuffed Red Peppers

Welcome to #testkitchen – where I find random recipes on the web worth working on 🙂 Customizing other recipes helps you to learn how to make your own to fit your nutritional needs.  


First with flavor, technique later

Things can fall apart (literally) when you start to adjust the techniques of a recipe. So start with seasoning, it’s much easier to recover in case something goes wrong.  After you make it a few times adjust the texture to your liking.
