I decided that I wanted the taste of stuffed peppers, but I was being lazy, so I didn’t want to put in the work to get them!  Enter slow cooker…oh my gosh, this thing has come to my lazy rescue so many times.

I put together some ingredients that would make for a healthy stuffed pepper recipe, and I added a bit of chicken broth.  Threw it all in the slow cooker, and wa-lah!  Deliciousness achieved with WAY less work!

  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • sea salt, to taste
  • cheese of choice for topping (optional) – I didn’t use any, but I think it would be yummy with some!
