I used green peppers however, other colors can be used. Also, the baking time is for al dente peppers. if you like them softer cook for more time.


Directions

prepare the brown rice and quinoa, place in large mixing bowl. grate the zuchini, patty pan squash and carrot and add into the mixing bowl with the grains. mix well.

preheat the oven to 350 and spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. cut stem from bell peppers, remove seeds and rinse inside. Fill each with the grain stuffing and set upright in baking dish.

prepare pesto:
in a blender, put pine nuts, olive oil, basil and garlic. blend until creamy. pour over the peppers.

bake for 45 mins.
