These healthy quinoa stuffed peppers are surely going to be part of your monthly recipe roundup! they are easy and they are freezable!! What’s not to love?
Sorry I haven’t posted for a while.
Something crazy happened to me….I discovered Instagram!
How fun is that?!
I know, I know…I sound so old! But who knew?
Now, whenever I cook something, I just throw the picture out there without having to do the whole recipe thing! That’s right up my alley because, most times, I cook from my head and when I do a post here, I have to re-create the recipe and remember to measure everything as I go so I can tell you all how to make it.
Which is good and everything…just a bit of a pain.
So, if you like “idea cooking” – just looking at a picture to spark an idea of what to cook – follow me on Instagram @justcrumbs and get your creative juices flowing!!
Here is a “sort of” recipe…the measurements don’t really matter all that much but I’ve given you ballpark amounts just so you know if you have the stuff in your fridge!
1 bag mini peppers (or 3-4 large bell peppers)
2 -3 c cooked quinoa (about 1 cup dry cooked in 2 c liquid for 20 min) *
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp olive paste
1 c cooked chopped greens (like spinach, rapini, kale, bok choy, swiss chard)
1/2 c goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
pinch not pepper flakes
1/2 c tomato sauce or salsa (optional)
