We all see the mini kitchens in those strange common areas in the dorm common rooms, but how often do we actually use them? Here is a recipe for vegetarian stuffed bell peppers that will give you a great opportunity to use these dorm kitchens to their fullest potential.
3/4 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Cut peppers in half lengthwise; remove the seeds. Place peppers in an ungreased shallow microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high until tender, 3-4 minutes.
Combine the tomatoes, rice and water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high until rice is tender, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the beans, corn, onions and pepper flakes; spoon into peppers.
Sprinkle peppers with cheese. Microwave, uncovered, until heated through, 3-4 minutes, and enjoy!
