Tempeh-Bean Stuffed Peppers


Vegetarians love stuffed peppers and meat-eaters will too with this recipe that includes tempeh, spinach, cannellini beans, and feta cheese.


  • 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.
