Nutritional values

Lentils provide various B vitamins that support the nervous system and the work of the brain. Peppers score with beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. The fat-soluble vitamin is important for healthy eyes and beautiful skin.

If you can't get yellow pointed peppers, you can of course prepare stuffed pointed peppers vegetarian with red ones or alternatively use normal peppers. You can replace the yellow lentils with red lentils as you like.
