Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers
This recipe is so easy to make and requires no pre-cooking. Just mix and bake. You can choose to use meat but this was easier and less calories. I used mainly Trader Joe’s products for this meal.
5 green bell peppers
1 can petit diced tomatoes drained
1 package instant brown rice
1 package of meatless beef (Trader Joe’s)
1/3 C bread crumbs
1/4 C parmesan cheese
a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder
Ketchup to top
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the tops of green peppers and remove seeds and core. You may need to cut off part of the bottom to create a flat surface so they can stand up. In a mixing bowl combine the meatless beef, rice, drained tomatoes, and parmesan cheese. I also added salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Spray a glass casserole dish and stand up the peppers. Fill them with the mixture and top with a swirl of ketchup and bread crumbs.
Cook for 30-40 minutes or until the peppers are soft to the touch.
