Stuffed bell peppers with rice are hands down one of the best Mediterranean culinary traditions. We make our vegan version of this best-selling recipe with big red bell peppers. This creates a meaty, juicy, sweet, and smokey flavour bomb. We season them with plenty of fresh dill, parsley, and cilantro. You can make them in a pot or roast them in the oven. In either case, they’ll be freaking delicious!
You can’t go wrong with these juicy and rich vegan stuffed bell peppers. So when I saw this recipe on the Instagram channel of my colleague “Lady with a fork”, I was super inspired to remake this recipe with some delicious red peppers, a ton of fresh herbs, and rice. A sure hit for all eaters.
You’ll need the following ingredients. We recommend white rice as peppers already contain a ton of fibre and whole grain rice would just take way too long to cook for this recipe. We prefer red bell peppers for their bright colour and sweetness. If you prefer you can use green peppers for a less sweet dish. Yellow and orange peppers work well too.
Try to use very ripe red vine tomatoes to give max flavour to the rice. Onion, garlic, tomato paste, and paprika are important to give full flavour to the rice. We extra virgin olive oil to gently fry onion and garlic and build extra flavour. We always recommend sea salt for fuller flavour and freshly ground black pepper. Flat-leaf parsley, cilantro, and dill will add a ton of freshness and flavour to the stuffed peppers. And vegetable bouillon to cook the rice with. Make sure you pick a brand that is preferably organic and doesn’t use glutamate.
