Expert Tips

  • Substitute orange or yellow bell pepper for the red bell pepper if you have one on hand. All of these colors of bell peppers are sweeter than green bell peppers and can be used interchangeably.
  • Recipe Variation Portabella Confetti Brown Rice: If you like the earthy flavor and meaty texture of baby portabella mushrooms, use them in place of the regular white mushrooms.
