Quinoa-stuffed bell pepper

This recipe for stuffed bell peppers substitutes a delicious (and healthy) quinoa-based stuffing for a more traditional filling. Since it only takes about 50 minutes to prepare and cook, it is an excellent addition to your regular meal rotation.

  • 1Rinse and boil

    Rinse the quinoa in a strainer. Place the quinoa and 4 cups of the broth in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes.

  • 2Sauté

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, celery and carrots and stir to coat with the oil. Add the thyme, sage, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper and toss well to combine. Sauté the vegetables until they begin to wilt, about 5 minutes.

  • 3Preheat

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • 4Cook

    Cut off the tops of the peppers, remove the seeds and ribs and place on a sheet pan. Spoon the quinoa stuffing into each of the pepper cavities and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until the peppers begin to soften and the stuffing is heated through.
