Stuff the Bell Peppers

  1. When the bell peppers are done baking, stuff them with the filling.
  2. Garnish with chopped green onions, sesame seeds and a drizzle of your favorite sauce. I use vegan sriracha mayo!


The recipe keeps well in the fridge for 3-4 days. To reheat, I recommend baking them instead of microwaving as the bell peppers can become soggy!
