Vegan Black Bean and Millet Stuffed Peppers

I discovered a traditional Mexican dish while living abroad in the Yucatan called Chilies En Nogada. It is typically served during the month of September in honor of Mexican Independence Day because the colors of the food in the dish mirror those in the Mexican flag: red, white & green. It is also popular over the Christmas holiday. Back home I created a vegan version packed with nutrients and healthy enough to be eaten every day and not just on special occasions. This rendition is high in protein, blood sugar balancing and makes use of millet, an often overlooked whole grain.
