Stuffed peppers with quinoa

Make stuffed Bell peppers said to me my husband so between door and Angel. In fact, he was also still right, because in our refrigerator slumbered wonderfully colorful peppers. Oh yes, a completely different topic, my dears! The rainforest in the Amazon is burning and it is really terrible to follow this in the media. I don’t even want to imagine in detail how many plants and animals are irretrievably destroyed. According to current sources, many fires are deliberately set to obtain land for growing animal feed or grazing land for cattle. If you want to become active, then consciously give up meat and donate to the right Organizations . I have linked you to a reputable source at the bottom of this page. Every Euro counts!

Peppers, stuffed? Yummy, yummy, yummy

One thing in advance: stuffing and baking peppers takes a while. For this reason it is certainly not a Recipe that you can quickly finish in 15 minutes ready. Therefore, there are two ways to choose it and be really happy with it:

  • PREPARE: You can prepare the filling for example the night before, fill the peppers with it and put them in the fridge.
  • SIMPLY CHILL: For example, on a Saturday, Sunday or any day you have time, just unwind and cook in peace.

For today’s dish we need only a few ingredients, Quinoa , vegetable broth, Paprika , onion, black beans, mushrooms, tomato paste, garlic, cumin, Italian herbs, salt and pepper. Optionally, top with a bit of vegan cheese (the brand I used is linked in the ingredients). Alternatively tastes also my vegan parmesan very good!

Are vegan cheeses actually healthy?

Stuffed peppers with quinoa

This question cannot be answered so simply. At the moment there is a huge discussion about whether you should consume substitute products at all. In addition, there are documentaries that downright demonize all meat and cheese substitutes. In my opinion, it’s the measure that counts! Sometimes it’s just delicious to top your pizza, or in our case peppers, with some “processed cheese” even though it may not be organic and contain flavorings. At Burger there is a similar discussion, since the artificial patties are not supposed to be so healthy either. Personally, I think you should try to cook fresh as much as possible with ingredients that are as unprocessed as possible. But if it may be a burger in between times, then gladly one Beyond Meat or something similar. The production of these patties is much more environmentally friendly and 100% without animal suffering. So, substitutes yes, but in moderation.

I love vegan oven dishes

You’ll be amazed at how filling these stuffed peppers make. Quinoa and beans are not only delicious, but also ensure that the last spark of hunger feeling is eliminated. Matched with a fresh, mixed salad with a great balsamic dressing . If dessert is desired, then perhaps such a delicious Chocolate dessert ?
