Can you stuff it? It started with a simple question. We asked our team of culinary experts what foods they could stuff. They kicked around a lot of ideas—burgers, chicken, pasta—before landing on stuffed vegetables. After some kitchen experimentation and a few rounds of recipe testing, they were able to come up with 7 unique stuffed vegetable recipes you need to try to believe.
