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.
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.
Stuffed Pepper Bowl Recipe
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.
