Remove tops and seeds from green peppers. Stand pepper cups upright in microwave-safe baking dish. Wash and pick over peas. Place in medium saucepan with 1 1/4 cups water and vegetable broth mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute onions, garlic, and mushrooms in the balsamic vinegar.
