Vegan Stuffed Peppers

A vegan twist on one of my old favorite and easy dinners to make. These taste just as good without the meat! 

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

Makes:  4 whole peppers    Total Time:  60 minutes

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups rice

1 1/2 cup vegetable broth

1 1/2 cup tomato sauce

1 heaping teaspoon of Italian seasoning

1 onion diced

1 15 oz can kidney beans

1 15 oz can of corn

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

4 bell peppers, any color

1 can tomato sauce

Instructions (Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F)

In a pot, add rice, vegetable broth, 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce, herbs, and onion. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low, cover pot and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until rice is done cooking and liquid is absorbed.

While rice mixture is cooking, prepare peppers. Cut tops off of peppers and hollow out, discarding inner seeds.

Place peppers into a large pot of salted water and boil for 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove from water and set aside.

Once rice mixture is cooked, add kidney beans and corn. Mix well.

Add garlic powder, onion powder & cumin. Mix well.

In the bottom of an 8x8 casserole dish pour 1/2 can of tomato sauce and spread around and place peppers on top of tomato sauce. Salt inside of peppers well.

Fill peppers with rice mixture and pour remaining 1/2 can of tomato sauce over the top of each pepper.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Serve immediately with green onions, avocado or other toppings you desire.

Filling makes enough for 4-5 large stuffed peppers. Remaining rice mixture can be used for another tortilla/burrito meal.
