Shrimp and Seafood mixture:
1. Mix shrimp, crabmeat, 1tsp of lemon juice, 1/2 tbsp of Garlic powder &
1/2 tbsp of Cajun seasoning
2. Set aside

Preheat Oven to 350°
1. Heat 1/8 cup of Olive Oil in pan over medium high heat.
2. Sauté yellow onion, green onion and celery for about 3 minutes
3. Add meatless meat. Mix and cook for about 2 minutes.
4. Add shrimp and crabmeat mixture, 1 cup vegetable broth & 1/4 cup Cajun Seasoning.
5. Mix and cook until shrimp becomes slightly pink, about 5 minutes.
6. Add another 1/4 cup of vegetable broth and 1/4 cup of Italian Bread Crumbs.
7. Mix throughly and remove from heat.
8. "Stuff" bell peppers and sprinkle bread crumbs & parsley to top
(I use half size tin pans, 6 halves to a pan. See pic below)
9. Add 3 tbsp of water to the bottom of pan.
(this will help soften the bell peppers as they cook)
10. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes (cook less if don't want your bell peppers tender)
