    Made this for a 'gluten free' friend and myself. Didn't even tell her it was lowfat and neither of us missed anything. This was delicious! Substituted zucchini and mushrooms for asparagus and corn. Doubled the recipe and used one red and one yellow pepper. Really good! - 2/3/09

    This recipe was amazing! I dont like onion so I left out the onion and scallion and didnt have fresh cilantro so I used dried.
    When I cooked the Quinoa I used vegetable broth, instead of water like package directions, to give it more flavor.
    Will definately make again!!!

    These were delicious, my husband hates bell peppers but he loved these. I didn't have quinoa or scallops so I used barley and slightly more onion. It was amazing. - 1/17/09

    Really great vegetarian meal and easy to do. We parboil the peppers before stuffing, and use a variety of colors for a group. - 4/23/12

    I didn't have any quinoa, so I used some left over brown rice that I had instead. I did not cut my peppers in half, I left them whole. - 2/5/15

    This is very tasty. I used cauliflower "rice" for the quinoa, diced mushrooms for the corn, and salt-free Italian herbs to make it Whole30 compliant. - 2/6/18

    might tweak this a bit with a different cheese and maybe broccoli instead of asparagus when fresh is not available - 2/5/17

    love the stuffing. I don't bother stuffing the peppers, though. I cut 'em up in chunks . . . . and combine it with the filling. Sort of a deconstructed stuffed pepper. - 2/5/17

    Try goat cheese instead of feta for a tangier result. - 2/5/17

    I made 4 servings so I would have leftovers. I left the peppers whole, not cut in half, and lleft out the asparagus and green scallion. It was really delicious! A great way to eat quinoa. - 5/5/09

    This is one of my favorite meals and when I need meat, I use ground turkey. It is full of veggies and such a healthy and fulfilling meal. Quinoa is a much better option than rice. I also make a tomato sauce and top it off with it. - 2/5/20
