Vegan Stuffed Bell Peppers

Recipe:
Servings 4 .
Ingredients:
4 bell peppers
2 cups cooked rice of choice
1 cup textured soy protein or chickpeas
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers (any color you like)
4 tbsp crushed tomatoes
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce (wheat-free if GF)
1 tbsp oil (e.g. sesame oil or coconut oil)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
vegan cheese sauce (or your favorite vegan cheese) to taste
chopped chives to taste

Instructions:
Cook your favorite rice according to packaging instructions. You will need 2 cups of cooked rice for this recipe.
Soak 1 cup of textured soy protein (TVP) in a bowl with 1 cup of hot water (or vegetable broth) and set aside for 5-10 minutes (skip this step if you are going to use chickpeas). The TVP will begin to fluff and absorb all the liquid.
With a knife, carefully remove the “lids” of the 4 bell peppers and also discard all the seeds.
Heat oil in a skillet, add the chopped onion, minced garlic, the textured soy protein and fry for 4-5 minutes over medium heat.
Add the chopped 1/2 cup bell peppers, crushed tomatoes, soy sauce, peanut butter, spices (curry, smoked paprika), salt/pepper to taste and coconut milk to the skillet and let simmer for about 5 minutes on low-medium heat. Stir occasionally.
Now add the cooked rice and check if the mixture needs more salt/pepper/spices.
Fill the 4 peppers with the rice/veggie mixture, add your favorite vegan cheese to taste or make my easy vegan cheese sauce, and cook in the oven at 190 degrees C (about 375 degrees F) for about 30-45 minutes. You will probably have some leftovers of the rice/veggie mixture.
Enjoy your stuffed vegan peppers!
