These protein packed stuffed peppers are the perfect vegetarian dish!



  • 2 bell pepper
  • 1 cup cooked lentils (1/2 cup dried)
  • 1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 tsp of garlic powder
  • sprinkle salt & pepper


  1. How to cook lentils: 1 part lentils, 2 parts water. Boil for 30ish minutes or until soft. You can do that part ahead of time, if needed.
  2. Saute your onions in a pan over medium heat until soft. I just sprayed the pan with a little olive oil- you won’t need much.
  3. While that’s cooling, slice the top off the bell pepper, and clean out the seeds inside.
  4. In a bowl, toss the lentils, onions, tomatoes, cheese and spices together until mixed.
  5. Scoop it into the pepper, and pop it into the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until the pepper gets soft.
  6. Tip: Stick the peppers in a muffin tin, so they don’t tip over on a baking sheet.
