Stuffed Bell Peppers

We love this simple, satisfying, super-tasty meal. It’s full of fresh flavors, and can be different every time you make it.


  • 2 bell peppers, halved and de-seeded
  • 1 pack / 8.5 oz ready-to-eat rice (plain or flavored)
  • 2 tbsp pitted olives, chopped (or add beans, corn kernels, sun-dried tomatoes, or chopped nuts if you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp vegan pesto (or sundried tomato paste or any other sauce you like)
  • ½ cup shredded vegan cheese


  1. Put the pepper halves on a plate with the cut side up and microwave for 6 minutes until they have softened a little. Tip out any water that has collected in them (careful – they’re hot!).
  2. Mix the other ingredients together, then divide this between the peppers.
  3. Put back in the microwave for another 3-5 minutes, depending on how soft you’d like your peppers.
