Rice-Stuffed Peppers

Recipe from

Southern Living


4 medium-size green bell peppers
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (16-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, divided
1 cup cooked long-grain rice
1 cup vegetarian burger crumbles
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)


Cut off tops of bell peppers; remove seeds and membranes, and place bell pepper cups in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish. Remove stems from tops, and discard; chop bell pepper tops.

Saute chopped bell pepper and onion in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce and next 5 ingredients. Spoon mixture evenly into bell pepper cups. Top evenly with remaining 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce.

Bake, covered, at 400° for 45 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle evenly with cheese, if desired; bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Boca Burger Crumbles for vegetarian burger crumbles.
