I hope everyone survived the heat this past week! Recently I posted a picture on my instagram (lilysway23) of the Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers and got a lot of feedback.

There are a TON of recipes online with all different ways to make it. My Aunt decided to cut the peppers in half instead of stuffing an entire pepper which was good because the weight of the food and quinoa would’ve weighed it down and made it really soggy.

This meal provides good source of protein, iron, calcium, fiber, as well as vitamin A & C.

Ingredients:

Onions

Celery

Garlic

Spinach

Tomatoes

Black beans

Quinoa

Pepper jack cheese

Bell peppers
