Moroccan Stuffed Peppers ~ Vegan, GF

Hi all!  Sorry I’ve been MIA the last few days.  I’m back and I have a super fabulous meatless dinner for you! Even my meat-eating husband liked this one 🙂

It combines some wonderful Moroccan flavours like cumin, cinnamon and cloves.  It smells so good when you’re cooking it and tastes even better!Moroccan Stuffed Peppers ~ Vegan, Gluten-Free
