Gluten Free A-Z : Vegan Stuffed Peppers

Vegan stuffed peppers are colourful, tasty, and nutritious. I like this straightforward Israeli-style recipe that I initially tasted after which recorded after I visited my sister-In Legislation on our latest journey to Israel (June 2023). 

Center Jap recipes name for plenty of health-giving flavorful spices. My SIL makes use of recent garlic, recent cilantro (you can substitute parsley), recent lemon juice, delicate jalapeño pepper, and chopped Roma tomatoes.

She provides all of the herbs, spices, and juice to raw rice, stirs and permits it to marinate for an hour earlier than stuffing and cooking the peppers.

I used to be in Complete Meals Market the opposite day and I spied a bag of  orange, purple, and yellow natural bell peppers. The value was right- $5 for the bag total bag of seven peppers. (Two years in the past I may need thought it was expensive, however I’ve change into accustomed to the escalation of our meals costs). As quickly as I noticed them, I knew I wished to make stuffed peppers.

The peppers have been slightly straightforward to make as soon as the stuffing was marinating. I merely lower off the highest of every pepper, cleaned out the seeds, and added the rice combination to every pepper.

Nevertheless, I made some additions to my SIL’s authentic recipe.

This was way more than this. I forgot to take the picture till after I had already began 
stuffing the peppers!


The produce (which is grown and harvested in Israel) is far tastier than the produce within the US that’s shipped right here from everywhere in the world and picked earlier than it’s ripened. I felt I wanted so as to add some elements to my recipe to boost the flavors considerably.

I cooked the stuffed peppers on the stovetop in a deep skillet (coated) till the rice was nicely cooked.

As soon as the stuffed peppers have been totally cooked and the flavors blended collectively, I transferred the peppers and sauce to a casserole dish for serving.

I ate these hearty peppers with different cooked greens, however you can use them as a facet dish as your starch.  


7 colourful medium bell peppers 

2 cups of white rice, washed nicely (you can sub brown rice)

2 cups of chopped recent cilantro (or parsley)

1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice 

2 cups of chopped Roma plum tomatoes (about 4 tomatoes)

5 cloves of recent garlic, pressed 

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder 

1 jar of chunky delicate salsa

1 20 ounce jar of marinara sauce ( I take advantage of Complete Foods365 natural fats free)

2 cups of water. 


Wash the peppers, slice off the highest, clear out the seeds and put aside. 

Place the rice, cilantro, tomatoes garlic, garlic powder, in a bowl and blend nicely. Permit to take a seat for 1 hour to marinate.

When executed marinating, add the salsa and blend. Stuff the peppers with this combination and place in a small dutch oven sort pot or deep skillet. Cowl with marinara sauce and water. Carry to a boil after which flip right down to a simmer, coated for about 45 minutes (test to forestall burning including 1/4 cup of water if wanted) or till all rice is smooth. Take away from the dutch oven pot or skillet and place in a casserole dish to serve. 

My Notes: 

When our Israeli kinfolk go to us, they’re at all times baffled by our grocery retailer produce which isn’t normally regionally in season. It seems so good, however it does not at all times have a lot of a taste. For instance, peaches, strawberries, tomatoes. In Israel, the produce is grown regionally and normally picked ripe, so the flavors are at all times like a yard summer season tomato right here. (Israel has a heat local weather and is a small nation concerning the measurement of New Jersey)


This recipe is a complete meals plant-based oil-free recipe that can also be gluten free. All of my recipes on my weblog are gluten-free. They’ve at all times been vegetarian and as of 2021 they’re vegan and oil-free


A Thought for Aggravating Instances

Stress depletes our physique’s reserves of nutritional vitamins. I used to be studying that at occasions of excessive stress, it is very important take additional vitamin C and zinc ( at all times test together with your physician first) and B nutritional vitamins. In fact sleep can also be important too; it’s when our physique heals.
