  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a saucepan bring 3 cups water to a boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, core and seed green peppers, leaving bottoms intact. Place peppers in a microwavable dish with about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom. Microwave on high for 6 minutes.
  3. In a small frying pan bring soy sauce, wine and Worcestershire sauce to a simmer. Add tofu and simmer until the liquid is absorbed. Combine rice (after it has cooled), tofu, cranberries, nuts, cheese, salt and pepper; mix and pack firmly into peppers. Return peppers to the dish you first microwaved them in, and bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, combine tomato sauce and brown sugar; heat until hot throughout. Spoon sauce over each serving.

very nice.

This was really yummy! I baked the green peppers face down for about 25 min before stuffing them and putting them back in. I also added cumin to the mixture. I did not use the sherry, I didnt ...

Excellent Dish. I was a little concerned about it tasting rather bland though it came out amazing. The cranberries and pecans gave it a great accent. I was a little confused by the directions. ...

Very tasty! One of the best 'stuffed pepper' recipes I've tried... Great marinate/ saute for tofu, which I'll use again for other purposes too! I used 'Dragonfly's Bulk Dry Uncheese Mix' (from v...

This turned out great! I made this and froze it so that I could pop it in the oven another day. Since it was frozen, it had to bake quite a bit longer (about 1 hr 15 min total). I like the way t...

Didn't like it at all. I'm not sure what made me think this would be good.. While I was making it I couln't stop telling myself what a bizarre recipe it is.
