Gluten Free Stuffed Pepper Bowls
These bowls are one of those assembly type meals that I love to plan ahead and bulk cook for. We love the flavors so much, and could honestly eat like this every day.
Obviously our meals are more varied, but I can legit enjoy this as lunch all week long. And they are super easy, actually - all I do is cook up a big pot of quinoa (I do this most weeks anyway) and make a batch of my Versatile Vegan Meaty Crumbles recipe (often a double batch).
Then when it comes time to assemble the bowls, I slice up a bell pepper, a lemon, and some cherry tomatoes, and grab big bunches of greens.
Oh, and don't forget the hot sauce.
Super easy, super quick, and deliciously satisfying and packed with flavor and nutrients.
Oh, and don't forget superfoods.
Healthy Vegan Recipes
This Vegan Deconstructed Stuffed Pepper Bowls recipe is one of seventy five healthy and delicious meals from Nourishing Superfood Bowls - my new favorite book from a favorite old friend, Lindsay Cotter.
ACK! I cannot even express how excited, proud, inspired, and happy I am for my dear friend Linds and her stunning new book! Literally, stunning. The corner of my book is curved up from all the dogeared pages I have of favorite bowls I have already made, and delicious bowls we are eagerly anticipating and cannot wait to make.
Easy Gluten Free Recipes
I have known Lindsay for a good long while, and have always known her to be the nutrition expert she is. She also used to be my Healthy Bites dealer, ha! I sure do miss having a freezer full of Lindsay goodies at my hungry snackin' fingertips, but I am willing to make my own as I watch her do bigger and greater things!
Like this book! Nourishing Superfood Bowls shows Lindsay's natural talent and expert knowledge, and did I mention this book is stunning?!
It is. It truly is.
All of the recipes are gluten free, and many are vegan or have vegan options. There are paleo options, and grain free options too. There is a 'family style' section where the serving suggestion is just that - family style (with options for individual bowls as well). Also included - a plant based chapter, dessert and small treat chapter, a light lunch (low carb or quick to make) chapter, and a breakfast chapter.
Vegan Superfood Recipes
Oh yes. Breakfast. My favorite breakfast so far is the Midnight Mocha Oatmeal Bowl. The Anti Inflammatory Superfood Smoothie Bowl is the one I make most often, though - bright and tart and perfect for what I am doing right now.
That Weekend Brunch Bowl, though. That is happening soon.
Other favorite bowls of ours, so far? I cannot stop with the Green Goddess Power Salad Bowls. and the Quick Zesty Apple Kimchi Salad Bowl - oh SO good.
It isn't all salads, though - far from it! From the Spicy Pickled Veggie Quinoa Bowls to the Kale Pesto Sweet Potato Spaghetti Bowls, hearty and flavorful are covered. Comfort food vibes abound with the Mediterranean Layered Lentil Salad Bowls and the Avocado Pesto Mexican Pasta Bowls.
The recipes we have our eye on for this week include the Korean BBQ Chickpea Bento Bowls, the Creamy Red Pepper Carrot Pappardelle Pasta Bowls, and the Loaded Sweet Potato Nacho Salad Bowls. Oh yeah.
Followed by the Rum Raisin Yogurt Oatmeal Crisp Bowl. Can't skip dessert! If you want your sweet to be something warm, the Spiced Baked Fruit Bliss Bowl is the one for you!
I'll be over here enjoying my Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Parfait Bowl...
Vegan Bowl Recipes
The Vegan Deconstructed Stuffed Pepper Bowls.
Well, Lindsay's original recipe in the book calls for beef, and are found under the title Deconstructed Stuffed Pepper Bowls. I know I have a vast variety of readers with different dietary preferences, and I only post vegan recipes here. (I asked Lindsay if I could sub out the beef and still share this recipe, and not at all surprising, Lindsay was completely cool and happy to have me do this. Lindsay, you are one in a million.)
There are plenty of healthy vegan recipes in this book, and even plenty that have simple vegan and dairy free options. However, after trying several recipes and having several that I wanted to share, I just really wanted to share this one.
It really is the one we make most often, and we love it so much.

Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite recipes. I love that you deconstructed them. You get all the flavor without all of the work.
Oh friend, you are amazing! I love the vegan version here and the video. Seriously, thank you! I can't wait to share this. You are such a wonderful friend and I appreciate you!

Sounds like Nourishing Superfood Bowls is an amazing book! I love the colors and composition of this recipe. It sounds delicious!
I've just started really getting into bowls. It must be a summer thing, filling but not heavy. I like to make a bunch of components and then assemble different types of bowls. A lot of prep but lots of meal variation.
Kristina this looks so so good! I love stuffed peppers, but love the look of these even more . Beautiful, colourful dish ❤️
