I had a craving for some stuffed bell peppers, and here is what I came up with! The savory filling complements the sweetness of the peppers perfectly. 

Serves 5
Ingredients
  • 5 bell peppers
  • 1/2 c quinoa
  • 1 can of of any white bean (I used Great Northern) (drained/rinsed)
  • 1/4 c cooked spinach
  • 1/2 c bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • walnuts (optional)
  • cheese for topping (optional)
Instructions 
Wash/remove seeds from the peppers. 
Cut off the tops (this will serve as a "lid").
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Add one cup water of water to the quinoa and let it come to a boil. Let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the quinoa becomes fluffy. 
Mix the beans, quinoa, bread crumbs, spinach, and spices together.
Spoon the filling into the peppers. At this point, I also added some grated Babybel cheese on top. 
Put the tops back on the bell peppers, and they're ready to go in the oven!
Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. 
I also added some chopped walnuts on top.

  1. Stuffed peppers are the best! I make them all the time, sometimes with ground pork for meat lovers.

  2. This is actually the first time I've tried making them, but I will definitely be doing it again!
