Amazing Stuffed Peppers

Amazing Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers seems like a pretty staple vegan dish but for some reason, I’ve never made or ate a stuffed pepper!! It turned into a great camping dish and it was tasty and enjoyed by non-vegans as well as me!
Red peppers are packed with Vitamin C, B6, folate and antioxidants. Did you know one red pepper contains 200% of your daily Vitamin C intake? They are also high in Vitamin A and help support our vision. I ate 3 stuffed peppers, so that’s a step towards better eye sight!!


  • 6 medium bell peppers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 cup diced veggies, I used mushrooms and zucchini
  • 1 tbsp Seasoning (I used Simply Organic All Purpose Seasoning
  • 2 cups of Beyond the Meat Ground Beef mixed with lentils
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 24 oz jar of pasta sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup vegan Cheese


Preheat oven to 375 and prepare quinoa according to package.
  1. Wash your peppers and cut off the top and clean out the inside.
  2. Cut your onion and put it in a frying pan. Add in some olive oil and cook for about 3-5 minutes over low heat.
  3. Put your heat to medium and add your vegetables, beyond meat and lentils along with the seasoning. Stir occasionally and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add your quinoa and stir well.
  5. Add 1 cup of your favourite vegan cheese and stir everything together.
  6. Arrange your 6 peppers in a baking pan or a casserole dish. I didn’t have a casserole dish at camp, but it would be preferred to the baking sheet.
  7. Fill your peppers to the top with your delicious filling!
  8. Top with the left over cheese.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes. You will see the cheese melting and peppers start to darken.
