You Won’t Believe They’re Vegan Veggie Stuffed Peppers

hey friends, let’s talk about these incredibly delicious veggie stuffed peppers i whipped up recently.

seriously, they’re so good, you won’t even believe they’re vegan!

first off, can we talk about how surprisingly “meaty” these bad boys are?

the filling, made with sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and cremini mushrooms, gets all hearty and satisfying when you blend it in a food processor.

it’s like magic how it mimics that ground meat texture!

and let’s not forget about the taste.

these peppers are loaded with flavor, thanks to marinara sauce, garlic powder, and a generous sprinkle of vegan mozzarella.

i used good planet mozzarella shreds for that melty goodness for the filling, plus a drizzle of miyoko’s liquid vegan mozz on top for that extra cheesiness.

there’s so much flavor in every bite!

now, onto the good stuff—nutrition.

sweet potatoes bring the vitamins, chickpeas pack the protein and fiber, and cremini mushrooms add that umami goodness.

it’s a winning combo that’s as good for your body as it is for your taste buds.

feeling adventurous? go ahead and mix things up!

swap out the sweet potatoes for butternut squash or the chickpeas for black beans. add some spices like cumin or smoked paprika for a flavor boost. the options are endless, my friends.

when it comes to storing these peppers, just pop any leftovers in an airtight container and toss them in the fridge for up to three days.

or freeze them for later—just remember to thaw them in the fridge before reheating.

in a nutshell, these veggie stuffed peppers are proof that plant-based eats can be just as drool-worthy as their meaty counterparts.
