Brunch Stuffed Peppers [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan





Cook Time



  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 vegan Italian or other variety vegan sausage, chopped
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • splash of Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 14-ounces firm tofu, pressed, drained, and crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp. kala namak (black salt)
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 4 large bell peppers, cut in half, seeded and cored
  • 8 slices vegan cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 425-degrees and line a 9-inch x 13-inch baking pan with foil.
  2. Add the crumbled tofu, nutritional yeast, thyme, turmeric, kala namak, smoked paprika, and pepper to a large bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add a splash of water or vegetable broth and sauté the onion for 3-5 minutes. Add the hash browns and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown. Add more water/broth a little at a time to prevent sticking – but you want to get some lovely brown bits so don’t add too much liquid. When the hash browns are soft and browned, stir in the garlic, vegan sausage, and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Remove the mixture from the pan and set aside while you prepare the tofu.
  4. Put the tofu mixture into that same pan and add a splash of vegetable broth, water, or tamari. Cook, stirring often, until heated through. Turn off the heat and stir in the parsley and the hash brown mixture.
  5. Place the bell pepper halves into the prepared pan and divide the filling between them. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the peppers are tender.
  6. If you like, place one slice of vegan cheddar cheese (or your favorite variety) on top of each pepper half. Set the oven to broil and watching carefully, melt and lightly brown the cheese.
  7. Serve with additional chopped parsley.





I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
