  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and set out a baking dish.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook peppers in boiling water for 5 min. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large rimmed skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion, garlic, and chopped red pepper until soft and translucent, 3-5min.
  4. Add the crumbled tofu and stir.
  5. Add chili powder, turmeric, cumin, salt, and pepper and mix well making sure the spices evenly coat the tofu. Let cook for another 2-3min or until tofu is hot and begins to brown.
  6. Place the peppers in a baking dish and generously stuff each one with the tofu mixture.
  7. Bake 15-20min or until peppers are slightly golden brown.
  8. Remove peppers from the oven and garnish with fresh cilantro.
  9. Plate, serve and enjoy!
