Are you finding yourself in a dinner rut? Always wondering what to make and then ending up back with the same thing week after week? These stuffed peppers are a great way to help you add some variety back into your dinner routine. Whether you follow a vegetarian diet or not, this recipe is a crowd-pleaser. The stuffing provides a ton of plant-based protein and filling fiber, while you get the majority of your daily vitamin C needs from the bell pepper! A healthy, nutritious and easy weeknight meal, what more could you ask for?!
Here is what you will need for these Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers:
The great thing about this recipe is it’s pretty straightforward and uncomplicated. Once you combine the ingredients for the stuffing mixture, you just spoon them into the halved bell peppers. I recommend pushing down on the mixture after each spoonful to make sure you can get as much packed in as possible.
The last step is adding the grated cheese on top. Then we bake! They take about 20-30 minutes to cook, or until the cheese is starting to brown and the pepper is cooked through.
Once they are out of the oven, you’re ready to serve! Enjoy these on a bed of extra quinoa or rice or even some leafy greens. Adding some tzatziki, guacamole or salsa on top is a great way to tie it together. You can even sprinkle on some pumpkin or sunflower seeds for extra texture.
