What ingredients do you need for Grilled Vegan Stuffed Poblano Peppers?
Below are notes about the ingredients before we get into the full recipe located lower in this post on how to make these easy poblano stuffed peppers:
You really can’t mess up this dish. The ingredients that you will need are:
- poblano peppers – We switched up the traditional bell pepper for these poblano peppers to add a kick of spice
- red peppers – We do still add some bell peppers into things for texture and taste.
- sweet onions – The sweetness of the onions balances out the spice a bit and creates a depth of flavor that’s great
- mushrooms – Adding a different texture and a meatier combination to this dish that’s absolutely delicious.
- cauliflower – Most stuffed peppers use rice, but we wanted to switch it up
- black beans and corn – standard stuffed pepper ingredients that help stretch the meal
- taco seasoning – we love this homemade taco seasoning recipe or you can use your favorite brand
- vegan cheese – We are using Daiya cutting board blend in the photos but also like Violife as well.
Substitutions and Variations
- Poblano peppers – While we switched up the traditional bell pepper for these poblano peppers, you can definitely do traditional bell peppers for this. You will need double the filling mixture since poblano peppers don’t hold as much
- Bell Peppers – Feel free to use any color bell pepper, we just liked the way red looked
- Sweet onions – You could also swap for yellow onions
- Mushrooms – You can omit mushrooms if you don’t like them. Add more beans or even chickpeas or tofu instead
- Cauliflower – Swap the riced cauliflower for rice
- Seasoning – We use a taco seasoning for a tex-mex flare but you can use other blends like BBQ seasoning, or other blends that you love
- vegan cheese – You can omit the cheese altogether or swap it for something like vegan feta, nutritional yeast, pepperjack and more

Using the large part of a grater, rub a large piece of cauliflower carefully over the grater until you have very small pieces of cauliflower. You can rice both the florets and the stems.
