Whole Grain Vegetable stuffed Peppers

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 cup cooked quinoa (cooked in vegetable broth)
    1 Large red bell pepper, seeded and halved
    1/2 tablespoon olive oil
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 medium zucchini, washed thoroughly, seeded and chopped
    1 medium yellow squash, washed thoroughly, seeded and chopped
    1 cup kale, washed thoroughly, remove ribs and chop
    1/4 medium red onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
    10 Cherry tomatoes, chopped
    1 lime, juiced

Tips

If you don't have quinoa use 1/2 cup of brown rice


Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Cook quinoa according to package directions with vegetable broth. We will only need 1/2 cup of the cooked quinoa.

Coat the bell pepper halves with olive oil. Place cut-side down in a oven safe dish with a little bit of water in the bottom of the pan. Just barely covering the bottom of the pan. Roast until the peppers are just tender, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and arrange peppers in a baking dish cut-side up.

Chop all ingredients in the list. I used an electric chopper which saved alot of labor. Mix in a large bowl the garlic, zucchini, squash, kale and onions. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Add to frying skillet with a little bit of water and cook for 5-10 minutes. Add the herbs and tomatoes then combine with the quinoa.

Fill the pepper halves with the mixture. Roast in a 375 degree F oven until the peppers are hot through, about 15- 20 minutes. Pour lime juice on top before serving.

If desired, serve topped with cheese. The recipe does not include cheese. Make sure to add the cheese nutritional info to your meal.
