This is a recipe that comes from my mother-in-law from Germany. The only difference is that I used tofu in place of the ground beef. It tastes just as delicious as hers.

This recipe had a good flavor, but I don't think tofu was the best filling choice. I would probably go with the soy "ground meat" or textured veggie protein next time. The sauce was delicious!

I too felt this recipe was on the bland side. Thankfully, I added a lot more crushed tomatos than the recipe called for; I couldn't help myself -I had to mix some in with the stuffing. Thank goodness I did -it was the only thing that made the peppers edible. Next time I will go with a traditional tomato/onion/rice type stuffed pepper mix.

I had never had tofu before so this was a nice dish to first try it in. But in the end, I played with this dish some. (1) Added lemon pepper, salt, pepper, parsley, and more paprika & parsley. (2) Topped the stuffed peppers with cheddar cheese. (3) Omitted tomatoes (just our choice.) and poured cooking wine in bottom of sprayed down pan. --- My 3 teenagers LOVED it! My husband & I thought it needed something a little more. (Cheese?) --- I WILL make this dish again for my teenagers. Perhaps with some toying I'll grow to love this dish as good as my teenagers.
