Party Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

I’ve always wanted to make stuffed bell peppers. So, this week I’ve been scanning through recipes on Pinterest and Google, and finally found an easy recipe that I could make myself with ingredients in my own fridge.

These bell peppers are packed with veggies and quinoa that will provide the nutrition you need for a healthy, filling meal! This recipe yields six servings, so if you don’t have that many peppers to fill up (I didn’t either) this quinoa mix makes for delicious leftovers!

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook 3 cups of quinoa, here’s a great step-by-step guide: Learn to Cook Quinoa
  3. Set aside off the heat for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff with a fork.
  4. In a large bowl, combine all of the above ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Spoon the filling inside each bell pepper. Spoon some into your mouth to make sure you like it.
  6. Place on prepared baking dish with foil on top.
  7. Bake until the peppers are tender and the filling is heated, about 25-30 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately or let cool down and refrigerate for another meal!
