A deliciously lean vegan main course...

Everything about this recipe for stuffed peppers with vegan minced meat is good for you! Sweet pepper (especially the red version) contains a lot of vitamin C. Corn contains magnesium and eggplant contains a remarkable amount of fiber.

The chickpea lentil rice makes this dish extra nutritious by, among other things, the extra proteins.

Ps: You will probably have some left over filling but  you can simply serve this separately. Yummy!

Serves 4


  • 4 peppers (red or yellow)

  • 1 onion

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 1 aubergine / eggplant

  • can of corn (200 grams)

  • 400 grams of canned tomato cubes

  • 400 gram of vegan minced meat (Naturli)

  • glass of water

  • salt / pepper to taste

  • Italian herbs

  • (spicy) paprika powder

  • 50 grams of chickpea lentil rice or just brown rice

  • fresh basil leaves

  • 4 tbs olive oil

  • 1 bay leaf

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 390ºF.
    Cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seed lists.

  3. Add the vegan mince and fry for a while.
  4. Pour in the tomato cubes and the water. Season with salt / pepper, Italian spices, paprika, basil and the bay leaf. Now you can also add the rice.
  5. Stir well. If you notice that the filling is too solid, add some more water. Let it cook for about 15 minutes with a lid on the pan and stir now and then so that the rice does not stick to the bottom. Turn off the heat. Remove the bay leaf from the pan.
  6. Fill the peppers with the filling. Place the peppers in a baking dish. Put the bell pepper cap on and sprinkle or rub the bell pepper with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. The oven dish can be put in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes. Serve this stuffed pepper with vegan minced meat with, for example, sweet potato puree or a salad! salade!
