Curried Lentil Stuffed Peppers

These lentil stuffed peppers take no time to make and the ingredients are super simple. Enjoy!!


3 small-medium, or 2 large bell peppers
2 large carrots, diced
½ a yellow onion, diced
¾ cup diced mushrooms
1 Tbsp + ½ tsp curry powder
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp tomato paste
½ cup lentils (any color will work)
1½ cups low sodium vegetable broth (See Tip below)
2 handfuls of spinach

Tip: The amount of broth varied depending on the brand of lentils; start with 1.5 cups and add more as need.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prep the peppers. Slice each pepper in half and remove the seeds. Place in a baking dish, filled with about 1cm of water. Cover with aluminum foil. Place in your preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until peppers have softened and cooked. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium sized pot, heat a dash of oil over med-high heat. Add onion, carrot, and mushrooms and saute for a minute or so until the onion begins to soften.
  4. Add the curry, ginger, turmeric, and tomato paste.
  5. Add the lentils and broth. Cook until the lentils are soft and have absorbed the majority of the broth.
  6. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat.
  7. Spoon lentil mixture into the pepper halves. Serve with a side salad and enjoy!
