  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook brown rice according to package instructions.  Cut tops off of bell peppers and remove seeds and pit. Cut out a heart in the center of each bell pepper. Save the cutout hearts.

  2. Place peppers on a baking dish or tray and lightly spray with cooking oil. Sprinkle sea salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pepper is slightly soft. Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, celery, carrots, and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Stir in yellow bell pepper and continue to cook for 3-4 mins, stirring occasionally. 

  3. Turn the heat off and add cooked rice to the skillet with the remaining ingredients. Once red bell peppers are ready, remove them from the oven and stuff them with the rice mixture. Use cutout hearts to place back into the pepper to prevent the stuffing from spilling out. 

  4. Place stuffed peppers into the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve warm and enjoy! Remember to remove cutout hearts to expose the filling of each pepper.
