Easy Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers are the perfect veggie-focused dinner in our opinion. You can customize them to include your favorite ingredients, the options for toppings are just about endless, plus they're so darn cute! 


Roasted Peppers:

  • 4 large bell peppers, halved stem to base with the seeds removed
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1/2 cup of brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Ideas for garnishes: guacamole, sour cream, salsa


1. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Put your peppers face up in a 9x13 in. baking dish and drizzle olive oil over the top of them. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 20-25 min, then set aside.

2. Cook your rice using the instructions on the package.

3. In a large skillet, add 2 tbsp of olive oil followed by the onions. Season with salt and cook, stirring often, until the onion is soft (about 5 minutes). Throw in the tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.

4. Put in your cilantro, garlic, chili powder, and cumin and stir. Then, remove from the heat and add your rice and lime juice. Stir everything until combined and top with a little fresh pepper.

5. Stuff each pepper with your veggie and rice mixture and top with cheese. Then, bake at 425 F for 12 to 13 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!
