Sabroso Saturday: Vegan Stuffed Peppers

by Migdalia Rivera

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!


I try to make at least 2 non-meat meals per week. I find this helps me save some money (and my waistline!).

For these meals, I usually make some type of fish, a savory omelet or a veggie dish. This week I will feature one of the veggies dishes that I make, a vegetable stuffed pepper. I know it sounds weird doesn’t it – like stuffing a chicken with a chicken right? – but it’s actually good! Its also healthy but don’t let that fool you, it packs a punch! 

The recipe is simple and quick to make.  I use left over beans since it keeps me from throwing them, and my hard earned dollars away. Since you are using left over beans that have already been seasoned you don’t have to add much more to the recipe which makes it easy peasy.  This is also a basic recipe so don’t be afraid to play around with the seasoning and change it up to suit your families needs!

¡Buen provecho!

 UPDATE: Thanks to one of my readers I learned that Vegan meals would not include cheese. So if you are preparing the recipe below as a Vegan dish, remove the cheese.

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

6 medium sized bell peppers (green, red or yellow- I like green)

  • 2 cups cooked beans
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozarella cheese
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • Black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil



  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Cut the tops of the peppers and take out the seeds. 
  3. Boil the peppers in a large pot for about 5 minutes. Remove peppers and place them upside down on paper to drain.
  4. In a bowl combine the other ingredients. Stuff the peppers with this.
  5. Place the stuffed peppers in a baking pan UPRIGHT. Pour a little bit of water in the pan and bake uncovered. 
  6. Bake peppers for about 20 minutes.


That’s it! They’re done! Now serve it with rice and you have a meal. :)
