How To Make Vegan Stuffed Peppers
Bring four quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Then, trim your bell peppers about 1/2″ from the top and clean out the stems and the seeds. You can use any pepper you like. Red, yellow, orange, or green bell pepper.
Place your peppers in the boiling water and let them cook for about 3-4 minutes until they’re soft. Remove the peppers from the water and allow them to cool cut side up.
Preheat a nonstick skillet and add the chopped onions. Let them cook until they are soft and slightly brown. Next, add the garlic, chipotle peppers, frozen corn, and black beans. You only need to let them cook for a couple of minutes.
Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and brown rice. Toss everything together until it’s well combined and get ready to stuff the bell peppers.
NOTE: Wild rice is an excellent choice for this dish. I use brown because it’s simply more affordable in addition to being healthy.
Line the bottom of a small baking dish or baking pan with parchment paper. Then, arrange the peppers on the pan and evenly fill with the rice mixture. Place the peppers in the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Remove them from the oven and enjoy immediately!
That’s it! Delicious Vegan Stuffed Bell Peppers.
