These Vegan Stuffed Persimmons with Lentils make a great alternative to stuffed peppers or tomatoes. I love trying out new things in the kitchen and this is one experiment which works really well. I can’t wait for you to try it.

I use fuyu persimmons in this recipe as they are usually slightly sweeter. I start by making the filling by sauteing onions, garlic, ginger and mushrooms. I then add the persimmon flesh and coconut water before stirring in the lentils and remaining ingredients. I stuff the persimmons well with the lentil mixture before baking for about 10 minutes. Delicious!
