Vegan and Gluten-Free Stuffed Vegetables

Filling, hearty, delicious stuffed vegetables full of good thing and low fat.

You don't need big tomatoes and peppers, only wide enough to be able to fill them up. You can either use a normal size courgettes and stuff it or like I did, a very small one that you'll use just for the stuffing.
