My Favorite Stuffed Peppers

 

Somewhere in the land of good planning, stuffed peppers happened. When I used to work in the kitchen of a little Trattoria in Montreal, we made a version of these all the time. The main difference being that these are made with quinoa and theirs were made with rice.

The bonus of making it with quinoa, other than it being far more nutritionally dense, is that the filling when eaten cold makes a darn good salad! Time saved. That was easy!

 

 

Ingredients

MAKES 2 PORTIONS

2 C of greek salad, give or take
2 large red peppers
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 C olives, chopped

Note: To make them ahead of time fill the peppers & place them in a container in the fridge, then all you will have to do is transfer them in an oven safe dish when you are ready to cook them.
