Vegan Stuffed Peppers
Vegan Stuffed Peppers are the ultimate meatless meal! They're filled with vegan walnut taco meat, black beans, corn, and diced tomatoes and are a healthy, protein-filled dinner recipe that can easily be prepped ahead of time.
- 3 bell peppers
- ¾ cup walnut taco meat
- ½ cup black beans drained and rinsed
- ¼ cup corn
- ¼ cup fire roasted diced tomatoes drained
- ¼ cup vegan cheddar cheese optional
- 2 tablespoon cilantro chopped
- chipotle aioli optional, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400°.
First, prep the walnut taco meat if you haven't already; set aside.
Slice each pepper in half and remove the seeds; place peppers face up in a casserole dish.
Combine the walnut taco meat, beans, corn, diced tomatoes, and cheese (optional) in a bowl and stir to combine. Spoon the mixture into each pepper (you might have some leftover), then bake the peppers for 20 minutes, or until the peppers are soft.
Before serving, sprinkle cilantro on top, and drizzle with chipotle aioli.
