The peppers
Red pepper, 6 medium units
The sauce
Onion, 1 large unit
Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
Garlic, 5 cloves
cut into slices
Boiled water, 2 cups
Canned crushed tomatoes, 800 g‎
Tomato paste, 2½ tablespoons
Vegetable soup powder, 1 tablespoon
Coriander, 1 handful
Salt, 1 flat teaspoon
Black pepper, 1 flat teaspoon
Cinnamon, 1 flat teaspoon
Sugar, 1/2 flat teaspoon
The filling
Basmati rice, 1/2 cup
Seitan with natural flavor, 350 g
Parsley, 1 handful
Coriander, 1 handful
Onion, 1 small unit
Hawaij for soup, 1 heaping tablespoon
Salt, 1 flat teaspoon
Black pepper, 1/2 flat teaspoon
Olive oil, 1 tablespoon


The Sauce:
‎1. Fry the chopped onion in the olive oil.‎
‎2. Add the garlic, boiled water and a can of peeled tomato that also has tomato sauce - crushed ‎tomatoes (those who can’t find can just use fresh tomatoes while frying, at least 4 tomatoes).‎
‎3. Add the tomato paste, vegetable soup powder, coriander, salt, black pepper (to taste), cinnamon ‎and sugar.‎
‎4. Leave on low heat to cook while preparing the stuffed peppers.
The Filling:
1. Mix the dry rice with the seitan (ground it to crumbs).‎
‎2. Add the rest of the ingredients ‏and mix everything well. Fill the peppers, put neatly in a pot and ‎cover with the top cut (mainly for decoration).‎
‎3. Some of the filling I had left I also put in the sauce, it made the sauce richer and thicker. I made sure ‎to fill more water into the pot so that it reached three-quarters of the height of the peppers. A little of ‎the sauce I also poured into the peppers to soften well on the inside, and covered over low heat for ‎about 30-40 minutes.‎
‎4. Then bake in the oven without a lid on 320 °F (160 °C) for another 15 minutes for the top to golden.‎
‎5. Sounds like a lot of work but very simple and tasty.‎
‎6. Bon appetite (:‎
