Stuffed Peppers

Sweet bell peppers stuffed with hearty, flavorful beans and grains. These stuffed peppers are even better as leftovers because they absorb more flavor but still hold their shape after being cooled and reheated.

      Can the starters be portioned out to just make one serving then seal the remaining contents for another time?
