Stuffed Peppers in a Pot

Jump to Recipe

I know I totally promote meals that are quick to make. However, sometimes I feel like it’s okay to have a dinner take a while if it makes a lot of leftovers so you don’t have to cook as often. That saves time too. This is one of those meals. It takes longer than I wanted, but I have plenty leftover for dinner on other nights. Still a win.

Begin by dicing 1/2 an onion and 2 bell peppers. Combine these with oil and 1 tsp of garlic in a large soup pot. Saute for about 5-10 minutes until the onions are translucent. Add seasonings (1 tbsp Italian seasonings, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp chili powder), a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes, 2 cups of vegetable broth, 8 oz of tomato sauce, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, and 1 cup of brown rice. Let this simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally so that rice doesn’t stick to the bottom. After the 45 minutes, add a drained and rinsed can of kidney beans and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Once the cheese melts, it is ready to serve.
