"We love that word - easy. The peppers pre-cook in the microwave while you make the tomato, bean, corn, and green onion stuffing. When both are ready, stuff the peppers, and pop in the microwave again. Top with cheese. Easy!" — by Jen

"This is a basic recipe that you can play with for seasonings and ingredients. My first batch was good, but since then I've experimented with more or less spice, other veggies like mushrooms, and meat. It's different every time I make it now. Serve over basmati rice with naan bread." — by Michelle 
Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

"Amazingly fast and tasty recipe, very healthy too. Even the husband (not normally a huge tofu fan) enjoys it. I love it with tons of garlic but you can use less if you must. The oyster sauce I don't measure so it's approximate. It's pretty salty so use it to your taste. You could serve it with cooked white rice, but it's just as good plain." — by LittleGreyKitten
