A delectable vegetarian recipe for stuffed peppers, using soya-based textured vegetable protein (TVP) mince. You can find TVP mince in health shops, or you could use Quorn mince. You can also use different coloured peppers instead of green. For a vegan version, skip the cheese at the end, or use a vegan cheese substitute.
I used this recipe as a main meal so doubled the amounts and used grated Mozzarella Cheese to top the Peppers. As Green Peppers don't agree with me I used Yellow and Red Peppers giving each person one of each colour. As a meat eating family instead of the TVP mince I used beef mince. It keeps ok in the fridge once cooled, as my son-in-law took two in for his lunch the following day and heated them in the Microwave for his lunch. You wouldn't think that Peppers could be so filling but its surprising just how filling they are. - 18 Apr 2014
What the heck is textured vegetable protein? I never heard of that. Can someone explain? - 12 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My boyfriend and I tried this recipe with a few tweaks and we LOVED it. We used cilantro instead of parsley, brown rice instead of white rice and added about 1/4 tsp of cumin. Sooooo good. I have already recommended it to all of my friends! - 15 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
