4 stuffed pepper halves


  • 2 red bell peppers, halved and seeded

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ (8 ounce) package tempeh

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  • ½ cup baby spinach

  • ¼ cup vegetable broth

  • 1 (4 ounce) package crumbled feta cheese

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add red bell pepper halves, cover, and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes.

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

  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook tempeh and onion until tempeh is crispy, 5 to 10 minutes. Add cannellini beans, spinach, and broth; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir feta cheese, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper into stuffing.

  4. Fill red bell pepper halves with stuffing. Place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered, until tops are browned, about 30 minutes.
