The filling in this stuffed pepper recipe uses millet, which is naturally gluten-free and has a nutty corn flavor--plus it cooks quickly because of its small size. We like Asian-flavored baked tofu in this recipe, but you can choose your favorite flavor. Serve with roasted broccoli or asparagus drizzled with sesame oil.

  • Combine water and millet in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook until the millet is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 18 to 22 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, place bell pepper halves cut-side up in a broiler-safe pan. Bake until starting to soften, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven. Turn broiler to high.

  • Combine tofu, carrots, cilantro, oil, tamari, chile pepper, garlic, ginger and sugar in a medium bowl. Stir in the millet. Stuff each pepper half with about 1 cup of the mixture.

  • Broil the peppers until heated through and the millet is starting to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

97 % of recipes from Eating Well are delicious. This recipe all though easy to make it lacks depth of flavor. Very bland even with the Serrano and ginger. Not sure what would make it better. Definitely not a recipe I will make again. Read More

Not one that I would rush to make again but it made for a decent meal. Perhaps using something other than millet might be better. Read More

we loved it but changed it from toful to meatfree crumbles. We had some stuffing left so we had it a few days later with a wrap & vegan cheese & green sauce so yummy. Read More
