  1. Place rice and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and stir in garlic and tofu. Cook about 5 minutes. Mix in 1/4 cup marinara sauce, season with salt and pepper, and continue to cook and stir until tofu is evenly brown.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press an equal amount of rice into each pepper half. Layer rice with remaining marinara sauce, and 1/2 the cheese. Press equal amounts of tofu into the pepper halves. Place 1 tomato slice on each pepper, and top peppers with remaining mozzarella. Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted. Serve 1/2 of each color pepper to each person.

excellent. i didnt change a thing.

This was pretty good and simple to make. I did make a few changes, however: I had to make it a casserole because a couple of my peppers had gotten soft at the bottom, so I chopped the peppers ...

I took out the rice and added Tofu Burger mix to it instead. It still turned out great

Bland and squishy. Fulfills everyones stereotypes about vege food. Too many corrections needed, but spice up the sauce, mix rice & tofu just before stuffing, and try some parmesan on top.

Wonderful way to incorporate Tofu (something new for me)into your diet.Excellent way to alter the usual ground beef and white rice variety. I felt so healthy eating this version. Will definitel...
