  2. Fill a glass baking dish with a small amount of water and stand the peppers up. Then, cover the dish with a plastic wrap and make holes in the plastic wrap because of the steam.
  3. Put the baking dish in the microwave and cook for about 6 minutes.
  4. Remove the water from the dish and leave the peppers in.
  5. Put rice and water in a bowl and make sure the water is twice as much. Then, add the tomatoes with the liquid and place it in a microwave and wait until the water is visibly absorbed.
  6. Spoon the tomato mixture into the pepper halves and put a plastic wrap around it. Make some holes to vent the steam and microwave for 4 minutes.

Chickpeas contain a ton of fiber, which helps with digestion and helps to decrease inflammation in the body. Fiber can also decrease the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels in the blood.
