Vegan Bulgur Stuffed Peppers

Vegan Bulgur Stuffed Peppers
With a few last bell peppers still camping out in the summer garden, I snagged them all up this past weekend before they went to the ground. Initially planning on throwing them in with some other veggies and doing a veggie roast, I decided instead to do something more creative: Stuffed peppers. I packed the peppers with iron-rich bulgur wheat, threw in a few herbs and a fresh chili for a kick of heat, and then ended up adding some soy crumbles at the last minute for a boost of protein. If you’re not a fan of soy protein, try tossing in beans, chopped nuts, or a combination of the two instead. Carrying with it both a lightness of summer and a heartiness suited for fall, this was the perfect meal to end a slightly cool, late October day. Feel free to top the peppers with cheese (such as parmesan or feta) for an extra element of flavor, or keep it vegan like I often prefer to do.
