Best Stuffed Vegetable Recipes

If you enjoyed this stuffed mushroom recipe, then you’ll be pleased to hear that we have a plethora of mouth-watering and easy to make recipes with stuffed vegetables for you to indulge in. Whether you’re preparing something to pass around on a platter, or looking to rustle up a simple meal adapted to the ingredients you have in your pantry, having a range of stuffed vegetable recipes in your repertoire is a must. Perhaps the most popular vegetable to stuff is the bell pepper, as seen in this recipe for Parmesan Rice Stuffed Peppers. The ease in which its seeds can be removed and the sturdy constitution of the vegetable itself, makes it easy to handle when filling with delicious ingredients. However, there are many other vegetables that work just as well. Let’s take a look now at some of the less vaunted vegetables and recipes to try them with.

Tomatoes: Although not quite as easy to handle as a the bell pepper, tomatoes are still a great option, and perhaps the best type of tomato for stuffing is the liberty bell variety. It has a similar shape to a beller pepper and a slightly thicker outer skin than your average tomato, making it easier to empty and fill. What’s more, the inner pulp of the tomato adds extra flavor to the recipe, as this recipe for Garden Stuffed Tomatoes demonstrates.

Avocados: Due to the sizeable cavity left when you remove the stone from inside, avocados are ideal for stuffing with delicious rice filling. Drizzle some lime or olive oil over it before filling with leftover rice or a chopped vegetable mix and voilá! A delicious stuffed avocado in a matter of minutes. Just try this Curried Brown Rice Stuffed Avocado and see.

Cabbage: Finally for something a little different, why not have a go at these Stuffed Cabbage Rolls? These sturdy leaves act much like a tortilla wrap, making them easy to load with the delicious filling of your choice.
