Quinoa Stuffed Red Peppers

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    2 red bell peppers
    1/2 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 medium onion chopped
    2 minced garlic gloves
    1/2 tsp coriander
    1/2 cup quinoa
    1/4 cup parsley leaves chopped
    2 tbsp chopped pecans or walnuts
    1 oz provolone cheese, shredded

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice a very thin layer from base of peppers, so it sits up on baking sheet. Slice off top and remove ribs and seeds. Chop tops and set aside.
Heat oil in medium saucepan, add onion, garlic, coriander and chopped tops. Season with pepper. Cook until onion has softened, 4-5 minutes.
Add quinoa, and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, and cover 11-13 minuts, until quinoa is tender. Remove from heat and stir in parsley, nuts, and provolone cheese.
Stuff peppers with quinoa mixture, place in 2 qt baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until peppers are tender, about 1 hour. Uncover and top with provolone cheese, bake 10-15 until cheese melts.
