Cheesy Vegan Black Bean and Corn Stuffed Peppers


IMG_3966

Feeling like a Mexican-inspired entree but not quite in the mood for a burrito? Try roasting bell pepper halves filled with organic corn and beans topped delicious, melty, vegan amazingness in a bag, Daiya cheese.

Ingredients:
3 peppers of your choice (red, green, yellow or orange)
1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can organic yellow corn, rinsed and drained
1 bag Daiya cheddar or pepperjack shreds
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp Mexican chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
Lime wedges for garnish

Make:
Preheat oven to 390°. Slice peppers in half vertically. Make sure you slice them so that they lay flat once cut.  Spray a cookie sheet lightly with nonstick spray. Place the peppers on the tray and lightly spray with nonstick spray, or rub them with a little extra light tasting olive oil to keep them from drying too much. Roast on the top rack for 15 minutes. Mix corn, beans, cumin, chili powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Take peppers out of the oven and carefully (they are hot, just came out of the oven!) place a layer of Daiya cheese in the pepper, followed by a layer of corn/beans mixture. Top it off with a generous heap of Daiya. Reduce heat in oven to 360° and roast for 15-20 minutes or until peppers are totally soft and slightly browned. Serve with a simple romaine, tomato and avocado salad, garnished with lime wedges.

  1. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

    1. Murray, I just start writing. If you have a thought, just write it down and the rest will follow. You can rearrange what you wrote later if you find that you came up with a better opening sentence or phrase during the middle of your brainstorm. When I know I am going to blog a recipe, I try to make mental notes of what I am putting in it as I go.

  2. I was thinking about how to make these 1000 better. I bet if I had put some vegan cream cheese like Galaxy Nutritional or Tofutti brand in with the Daiya, a splash of unsweetened soy milk in a saucepan and melted it a bit THEN mixed it into the peppers with the corn and beans. It would have been so creamy!
