6 steps
  1. LET'S PREP

    Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 375°F.

  2. PREPARE THE PEPPERS

    Ingredients used

    • 12 Ounce Package Impossible Burger
    • 8 Medium Red, Yellow, or Orange Bell Peppers (about 4 pounds total)
    • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt, plus more for seasoning

    Use a small knife to cut a wide circle around each bell pepper stem (like when carving a jack-o'-lantern) to remove the tops. Chop the tops and set aside (you'll use them in the filling). Season the inside of each pepper generously with salt and pepper. Place the peppers in 9 x 13-inch baking dish, wedging them together as needed to fit in one layer; set aside.

  3. COOK THE FILLING

    Ingredients used

    • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil
    • 1 Yellow Onion
    • 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
    • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning (dried)
    • 1 1/2 Cups Cooked Rice
    • 15 Ounce Can Diced tomatoes

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened – about 8 minutes. Add the Italian seasoning and garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add your Impossible Burger, diced pepper tops, and 1 teaspoon salt and cook on medium-high heat, breaking the Impossible Burger up with a spatula until cooked all the way through, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the rice and drained tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper as needed.

  4. STUFF THE PEPPERS

    Ingredients used

    • 4 Ounces Shredded Italian blend cheese

    Evenly divide the mixture among the peppers (use a canning funnel if you have one). Sprinkle the cheese over the peppers. Carefully pour 1 cup of water between the peppers into the baking dish.

  5. BAKE IT UP

    Ingredients used

    • Cooking spray
    • Scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish

    Spray one side of a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place it sprayed-side down over the peppers and cover the baking dish tightly. Bake until the peppers are softened but not mushy and the filling is heated through, about 1 hour. Sprinkle with scallions.

  6. SERVE, SHARE, AND ENJOY

    Makes 8 stuffed pepper, serves 6. Enjoy!
