Simple, tasty, vegan stuffed peppers made with just 9 ingredients. They’re also gluten-free, super healthy and a great entree or side dish.
I’m in love with this recipe. Look at those colors, peppers are so beautiful and taste like heaven. The filling is made with beans, brown rice, corn and salsa, so it’s a super nutritious, healthy, Mexican-style entree or side dish, you choose.
We used one green bell pepper, one yellow bell pepper and one red bell pepper, but you don’t have to, any color will do. We prefer to follow a colorful diet to get as many nutrients as we can from plant foods.
If you want to save some time, make big batches of this recipe and then reheat the peppers in the oven (we don’t use the microwave, but I’m sure it works as well).
