Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers & Tomatoes

I always wondered how the Greeks did such a great job with this dish and how they got the rice mixture inside the peppers and tomatoes to be so moist!  When I spoke to the chef at Mythos Dubai (my favorite Greek restaurant), he let me in on the secret - and who knew it was something so easy as a cube of vegetable stock?  So I figured I'd try my hand at making it with Maggi vegetable stock, which turned out to be pretty darn good!  Try out this killer vegetarian recipe and you'll be sure to be the host with the most!
