Vegan red bell peppers stuffed with quinoa

Vegan red bell peppers stuffed with quinoa

I love stuffed red peppers. I used to make them with meat, but since I am trying to eat less meat, I looked for vegan or vegetarian recipes for stuffed peppers.

This one is with the ingredients I had in my kitchen, as always.


  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup dried chanterells left in water overnight
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, or more to taste
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 bell peppers, tops cut, stemmed and seeded


In a bowl combined all ingredients together except the bell peppers. Spoon the filling into each bell pepper. Place each pepper in a pot with the cavity side up. Add some water (I used the water from the dried mushrooms.)

 Boil 25-30 minutes or until the peppers are tender.
