Tempeh is one of our top plant-based proteins you should be eating, and here’s another delicious excuse to do so, tempeh stuffed peppers.
If you’re looking to include more plant-based proteins in your life, making a familiar and classic recipe like stuffed peppers is a great way to introduce a new (or well loved) ingredient like tempeh. Stuffed peppers is a great recipe to include when you’re meal planning for the week, they’ll store and keep well for up to 5 days which is just enough time to enjoy them for a quick lunch on the go or 10-minute dinner to heat up.
These stuffed peppers will come in handy for a quick lunch on the go by just adding them to a huge bowl of fresh greens to make a salad. That’s right, this recipe is so good, you don’t even have to reheat it and enjoy it cold on top of a fresh greens salad. I recommend adding your favorite salad dressing with fresh lime and a generous sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro — fresh, fast, and delicious.
Some other tips I’ve picked up when making these is to go heavy on the lime juice! Lime juice and diced mango add such a bright component to the recipe, especially when tempeh is such a hearty protein.
