Vegan Stuffed Peppers!

IMG_20170923_212830_753[1] Sometimes the best recipes are the simplest ones and it took no time to get these yummy peppers prepared and on a dinner plate. My favorite thing about stuffed peppers is that it is an all in one meal, no sides needed! So if you’re looking for a quick and fulfilling dinner that will have you off your feet and in your plate in no time, look no further! Enjoy 🙂

What you need:

  • 4 Large red peppers (Feeds 2-4)
  • 2 Cups of brown rice
  • 4 Shallots, chopped
  • 1 Cup of mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups of kale
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 Jar of your favorite pasta sauce. ( I used whole foods brand garlic and basil sauce)
  • 1 TBS of crush red pepper flakes, black pepper & garlic powder
  • 2 TBS of dried basil
  • 2 TBS of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of Daiya cheddar style shreds

Method:

  1. Cut the tops off of the red peppers (cut about a half an inch from the stem) and removed the seeds.
  2. Boil Brown rice until tender and drain (Make sure to not make it mushy, it will cook a little more in the oven)
  3.  In a pan add olive oil and once hot saute shallots, mushrooms and garlic.
  4. Once tender add kale (You can add 1/4 cup of water after adding kale to help it simmer down and avoid the kale from getting to greasy from the oil).
  5. After kale has cooked down, add rice and stir together.
  6. Then add pasta sauce and seasonings and stir. Let simmer for about 3 minutes.
  7. Take rice mix off of the heat and add the cheddar shreds, mix until shreds are completely melted.
  8. Coat an oven safe pan with olive oil
  9. Stuff each pepper with a fair amount of mixture. Any left overs you can save for a rainy day.
  10. Place tops back on peppers and let bake on 350 for 10 minutes.
  11. Let peppers cool down for 5 minutes before serving. Your red peppers should be tender but still have a little crunch to them.

Talk about delicious! I was hoping for left over the next day but most of the time my household never leaves food around that long. I plan on making these again very soon!!

 

Until next time,
