Stuffed peppers with quinoa and sausage

Submitted by: R_DAVIES78

Introduction

Delicious and good for you! Delicious and good for you!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    -Two medium to large yellow peppers
    -1 oz of smoked sausage
    - 1/4 cup quinoa
    -1 plum tomato
    -1/4 cup zucchini
    - 3 tbsp chopped red onion
    - 1 clove garlic
    -1 tbsp olive oil
    -1 tbsp tamari (soy sauce)

    *Note: You can use green or red peppers if you want, I just prefer yellow ones. :)

Directions

Chop up all the veggies EXCEPT the peppers. Cut the sausage up into small pieces as well.


Cut top off the peppers (like a halloween pumpkin) and carefully scoop out the seeds, etc. (Don't pierce the walls of the peppers). Rinse and set aside upside down to dry.


Begin cooking quinoa according to the instructions on the package (should take 10-15 mins.)


Preheat the oven to 300.


In a large frying pan, heat olive oil at medium high. Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent. Add tomatoes, zucchini squash, mushrooms and sausage and cook until done. I suggest using smoked sausage that is already cooked and just warming it up. Add tamari, salt, pepper and any other herbs you like at this time.


The quinoa should be done about now. Take quinoa and mix it with the frying pan mixture. Stuff the mixture into the hollowed-out peppers. If you have too much mixture to fit, you can always eat some on the side. :) Put the "lid" of the peppers back on and place them in a greased baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes, take out, and enjoy!
