Recipe Ingredients for Rice and Tofu stuffed bell peppers

1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
6 ounce extra-firm tofu, drained and diced
1 3/4 cups marinara sauce, divided
2 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
2 orange bell peppers, halved and seeded
8 slices tomato

Recipe Directions for Rice and Tofu stuffed bell peppers

  1. Place rice and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes, or until tender.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and stir in garlic, tofu, carrots, and celery. Cook about 5 minutes. Mix in 1/4 cup marinara sauce, season with salt and pepper, and continue to cook and stir until tofu is evenly brown.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press an equal amount of rice into each pepper half. Layer rice with remaining marinara sauce, and 1/2 the cheese. Press equal amounts of tofu into the pepper halves. Place 1 tomato slice on each pepper, and top peppers with remaining mozzarella. Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish.

  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted. Serve 1/2 of each color pepper to each person.
