|Meatless Stuffed Peppers
w/ Roasted Red Potatoes
and Mushroom Gravy
This is the best vegetarian or vegan gravy. It’s quick and easy and we can never get enough! The mushrooms give it plenty of that great umami flavor that you expect from gravy but without the meat. The recipe for this gravy developed out of an excess of potatoes, but a lack of gravy or chicken/beef broth. We did have some vegetable broth on hand, and also a bunch of mushrooms, so I sauteed them and threw them in a blender to create an earthy, flavorful gravy.
Here’s the recipes for those Roasted Red Potatoes and Meatless Stuffed Peppers!
Even though Heather and I are not vegetariansThe example above is a vegetarian meal (can be vegan with a few modifications) but it really didn’t seem like it, even for a meat-lover like myself. The quinoa and veggie filling has the familiar texture of the more common ground meat filling in most stuffed peppers but with much fewer calories and the rich mushroom gravy from this recipe has all the savory flavor that you might otherwise be missing. Feel free to smother your pepper in it, if you try it out, Heather and I both did!
