Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

We’re trying to eat healthier in our home and I’ve started introducing Quinoa to our dinners. Quinoa is a great alternative to Rice, in my opinion. Here is the definition described from Wikipedia: Quinoa (play /ˈknwɑː/ or /kɨˈn.ə/, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a member of the grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds.

It’s very good for you and well I seem to like it so far! Last week I showed you a family recipe of Stuffed Peppers with eggplant, egg and cheese. This is much different but loaded with so much flavor. I hope you enjoy the photos I took capturing the phases of the pepper in this recipe. Click HERE for the recipe! I substituted the red for the green peppers and black beans for the kidney beans…just as delicious! I also ended up with a ton of stuffing left over for more peppers this week 🙂
