Smokey Stuffed Peppers

This is a great main dish for the Daniel Fast. It uses tofu for the protein source.redpepper

2 Tbs olive oil

2 stalks celery, minced (1/2 cup)

1 medium onion, minced

2 Tbs poultry seasoning

1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)

1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, drained and minced

2 cups cooked brown rice or wild rice medley

1/2 cup yellow raisins

1/2 cup vegetable broth

1 tsp liquid smoke flavoring

5 oz tofu, mashed

3 red bell peppers, laved lengthwise

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add celery, onion, poultry seasoning, and garlic. Saute until soft (about 7 minutes). 
  2. Stir in chipotle pepper and saute 2 more minutes.
  3. Add rice, raisins and broth; cook for about 5 minutes. This should be the consistency of stuffing.
  4. Meanwhile, mash tofu and then mix with enough liquid smoke flavoring to your taste (a little goes a long way). Divide the tofu among the pepper halves then top with rice mixture.
  5. Place peppers in 9″ x 12″ casserole dish. Add water until it comes 1/2″ up sides of peppers.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until peppers are soft and the stuffing is hot.

Yield: 6 servings

    What can I use in place of the tofu? I don’t want to use it.

    Hi Liz,
    You don’t need to eat Tofu if it is questionable for you. You can get plenty of protein and the iron that you need on the Daniel Fast without having tofu products. Protein Rich Foods: All Nuts and Peanut butter (any nut butters), Whole grains, Legumes and Leafy Dark Green Vegetables. Also, many people do add to their diet unsweetened (plant based) protein powder into a blended fruit/vegetable ‘smoothie’ as a meal replacement (make sure the ingredients comply with the Daniel Fast and watch out for milk products (whey) and sweeteners along with chemical additives).
    If you still question that you’re getting enough protein and iron in your foods consider adding a sweetener free/additive free plant based supplement to your regime. I hope this helps!

    Whole Grain rice might work, but it won’t provide protein. Beans would provide the protein, so maybe a combination might be ideal?

  4. Beans with rice provide all the amino acids for a complete protein.

    Also, quinoa is a whole grain and a complete protein.

    A balanced Daniel Fast eating plan will give you what you need for this fast.
