Vegan Stuffed Peppers(cheater style)

These are so easy and vegan unless you use dairy cheese to finish the top(we did).

5 largish red bell peppers, split vertically, and seeded
1 pkg Trader Joe's vegetable fried rice
2/3 cup salsa
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups Morning Star "beef" crumbles
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
(last 5 ingredient amounts are approximate)

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine the filling ingredients and heat in a few spoonfuls of oil until hot and well-mixed.  You may need to add 1/4 cup water if it starts to stick like mine did(because I had the heat too high).  Oil a pan and fill peppers generously with the mix, you will have leftovers for a few soft tacos or a salad!

Cover with foil and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the peppers are as tender as you'd like.  Another recipe I read said 30-40 min covered, and another 10 uncovered.  Mine are topped with grated white cheddar cheese, so not vegan for us.  I cook in a toaster/convection oven at around 400, watched closely.


Thanks for talking to me!
