Green Curry Rice Stuffed Peppers Recipe (vegan)

Green Curry Stuffed Peppers
Curry paste is a big flavor booster. I keep both red and green curry paste on hand to make easy vegetable curries and flavorful soups. I usually buy Thai Kitchen curry paste since it is vegan and gluten-free (and delicious).

For this vegan stuffed pepper recipe, I used green curry paste and coconut milk to flavor the rice and veggie mixture. Serve the baked peppers with extra cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime to heighten the flavor.

Green Curry Rice Stuffed Peppers Recipe (vegan)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped shallot or onion
1/2 cup coarsely shredded carrot
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon green curry paste
1 cup cooked rice (I used Jasmine)
1 Roma tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons tamari (soy sauce)
2 medium red or yellow bell peppers
Lime wedges and additional chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium (8-inch) skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add shallot; cook 3 minutes until softened, stirring frequently. Add carrot and garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk and green curry. Remove from heat. Add cooked rice, tomato, 2 tablespoons cilantro and tamari; mix well.

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds and ribs. Spoon rice mixture into bell pepper halves. Arrange stuffed bell peppers in a 2-quart square baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until peppers are tender when pierced with a fork.

Serve with lime wedges and a sprinkling of additional cilantro.
