VEGAN STUFFED HOT CHILE PEPPERS

 

  • Cooking Time: 45 minutes
  • Servings: 6-8 peppers
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 or 8 hot chile peppers (any kind will do)
  • 3 TBSP chopped crimini mushrooms
  • 2 TBSP canned spinach (drained)
  • 1 half of a roasted red bell pepper, chopped fine
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed or minced fine
  • 3 or 4 TBSP panko bread crumbs
  • 2 TBSP vegan "cream cheese" (e.g., Tofutti)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400˚ F.
  • To prepare each pepper, slice off the top part and use a small utensil (like a paring knife) to scoop out as much pith and as many seeds as you can.
  • Mix all other ingredients until well combined.
  • Using a spoon, stuff the chile peppers with the mixture.
  • Place stuffed peppers on a cookie sheet lined with Reynolds Parchment Paper for easy cleanup.
  • Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes, until peppers are soft and the filling is steamy.
  • Enjoy, but keep a glass of milk and a piece of bread handy!

Notes

My vegan roommate and I came by a windfall of CSA chile peppers and, in order to use them all at once, concocted a vegan stuffing and baked them. These peppers were so hot they brought tears to my eyes (and caused me to run for a glass of milk!). Got to love the spicy foods!
