When it comes to simple comfort dishes, nothing really beats stuffed peppers. They are juicy and tender peppers full of flavorful surprises inside! What we like most about the dish is the versatility which makes it an excellent choice for dinner menus.
Typically stuffed peppers are filled with ground beef and spices, but they can easily be made into a vegan comfort dish. Although the mere idea of making stuffed peppers makes me feel hungry, I always find it a bit difficult to eat. Won’t it be easier to just put everything in a bowl and eat it with a spoon? Well, that’s what we did in this dish!
This recipe for unstuffed vegan peppers features simple ingredients. It’s also super quick to make!
We swapped the beef with meat alternative, Loma Linda’s Vegetarian Burger. The texture of this product is very similar to that of ground beef and it works great to prepare burger patties, meatballs or simply crumbled like in this dish.
This is a one-pot dish and took us just under 15 minutes to prepare a big pot! Since rice can take a good 15 minutes to cook on its own, we swapped it with some instant rice and used the frozen bag of onions and peppers to further cut down the prep and cooking time. Cooking cannot get any simpler than this!
