Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers are a tasty, easy and delicious meal idea. You can serve it as it is or with meat, poultry or fish. A perfect weeknight dinner.
I have been digging around to find easy recipes to share such as this Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers.
To be honest, this exact recipe was originally called Vegetarian Paella, but I changed it. I just had to.
Needless to say, I was heavily inspired by Spanish popular dish Paella which is loaded with meat or seafood. Well, there are near hundreds of Paella recipes.
Everyone has their own household traditional way to make it. Paella is a typical Spanish recipe and is traditionally cooked in a “paellera“.
A round flat pan with two handles, which is then put on the table for the family to enjoy the meal.
However, I do not own paellera, I cooked it in a regular pan then stuffed paella in the bell peppers as you can see from the pictures.
Paella is very versatile, of course, but so are the stuffed peppers. You can stuff them with anything you desire; potatoes, ground meat, rice, etc.
I choose to make this Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers inspired by Spanish Paella completely meatless. It has plenty of protein, also it’s very simple as well as perfect for this winter season.
So you can substitute and play with different ingredients depending on what you are having in your fridge and pantry.
Be open and experiment for a bit here. I would say that this is a very comforting dish, but also healthy and delicious.
You should definitely give it to try even if you are not vegetarian. You can add a side of any meat if you desire and treat this as a side dish. As you can see there are so many options.
With that being said, you could most defiantly make it ahead and bake at night.
Perhaps place in the slow cooker and do a low and slow version which is amazing. Peppers will probably be much tender but hey, it tastes amazing.
