Vegan Stuffed Green Pepper Recipe For One


Vegan Stuffed Green Pepper Recipe For OneEating a diet rich in vegetables, including green bell peppers, reduces your risk of certain chronic illnesses. It has been reported that the antioxidants in vegetables reduce free radical damage. Free radicals are compounds that cause cell damage that can lead to cancer. While red bell peppers contain larger amounts of antioxidants, green bell peppers are a significant source as well.

Serve this stuffed pepper with a side of cooked sweet potato, mashed with a bit of garlic and olive oil; the color contrast on the plate is beautiful. It’s always fun to play with what you put on the plate; it’s like having a canvas and palette of paints in front of you. Always use organic ingredients when possible.

Ingredients

  • One large green pepper
  • 2/5 cup veggie crumbles (Boca Crumbles)
  • 1/8  cup onion
  • 1/4 brown rice cooked
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cut top off pepper and remove seeds and membranes.
  3. Place pepper shell in a casserole dish.
  4. In a small pot mix together, crumbles, garlic, onion, cooked rice and 1/4 cup tomato sauce.
  5. Cook until hot.
  6. Stuff cooked mixture into pepper and pour remaining 1/4 cup tomato sauce over pepper.
  7. Cover and bake 45 minutes.
  8. Uncover.
  9. Top with vegan cheese (optional) and bake another 10-15 minutes or until pepper is tender.

This recipe is easily adaptable, so feel free to use any seasonable vegetables you have on hand. Use quinoa instead of rice. You can taste and adjust the seasoning as you go, so it’s practically fool-proof!
