Friends, since the summer has started, the stuffed peppers recipe has been the undisputed leader and is at the top of the popular recipes, so I decided to share another option for its preparation. Stuffed peppers prepared with this variation have better-preserved aromas and flavors, I like this option more. I recommend you try it.

Vegan stuffed peppers

Total Time 2 hours
Servings 8


  • 1.5 kg bell peppers
  • 2 onions
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 4 carrots
  • 2/3 cup white rice
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small bunch of parsley
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro
  • 1/2 bunch of purple basil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • to taste salt & black pepper


  • Burn the skin of the bell pepper on the fire. Yes, yes, you have to burn it, it's very simple, you have to leave it on the stove for 2-3 minutes on each side. Then cool and remove the burnt skin. Then cut off the heads of the peppers, remove the seeds and the peppers are ready to be stuffed.
  • To prepare the filling, cook the rice, but not all the way through, it should be slightly undercooked because when you mix it with the vegetables, it will finish cooking.
  • Finely chop the onion and chop the garlic. Grate the carrot on a large grater. Peel the tomato and chop it finely.
  • Pour 5 tablespoons of oil into the pan, heat it, add onion and carrot, and saute. After about 5 minutes, add garlic, and mix well. After 1-2 minutes, add the cooked rice and mix well. After 5 minutes, add tomatoes and mix well again.
  • Finely chop the herbs and add to the filling, sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and paprika. Mix well and the filling is ready in 2-3 minutes. (I didn't use any spices except paprika, cause the herbs gave off such an amazing aroma, I didn't want to overshadow them).
  • Fill bell peppers with stuffing. Grease a baking dish with oil and arrange the stuffed peppers. Place it in an oven heated to 200°C and bake for 20 minutes.
    Bon Appetit!
