Back Story:  " As someone who is starting to eat more vegetarian and vegan based meals while looking to get enough protein, this is one of the first dishes I decided to make since it reminds me of my childhood."

Recipe: Meatless Vegetable Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 package Neat “Mexican Mix” Meatless alternative (equivalent to 1lb. ground meat) or whatever your favorite vegan crumbles are (Beyond Beef is another great option that I've used)

Optional toppings:

  • salsa
  • avocado


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook quinoa according to package.
  • In s separate skillet on medium heat warm olive oil. Add chopped onions and cook until translucent.
  • Add corn and black beans to onions and cook for a few minutes.
  • Stir in grape tomatoes, spices, and cooked quinoa.
  • Cook on medium heat for five minutes.
  • Line a casserole dish with parchment paper and place halved bell peppers inside.
  • Stuff bell peppers with vegetable quinoa mixture (use an ice cream scoop for easy stuffing).
  • Place stuffed bell peppers in the oven and cook for approximately 30 minutes.
  • While bell peppers are cooking prepare Neat “Mexican Mix” or other meatless alternative (equivalent to 1lb. ground meat.)
  • Once bell peppers are taken out of oven top them with the meatless alternative and toppings of your choice.
