    I have made stuffed peppers with Quinoa for a few years now. My version is to use cut up eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, garlic, fresh or dried herbs of choice..and sometimes a can of diced tomatoes or fresh cherry tomatoes cut up and add fresh spinach and cook for a minute or two then mix in the cooked Quinoa and whatever cheese I am using (feta, cheddar, mozzarella, pepper jack whatever I’m in the mood for). Stuff peppers and bake….add more cheese on top the last 5 minutes. I will definitely try steaming the peppers first to reduce baking time…and do the version with black beans. etc. I always use red, yellow, orange peppers and finely dice the tops that I cut up and include in the stuffing!

    This is a family favorite. But there is some confusion re cook time. At the top of the recipe it says 1 hour, 10 minutes. In the body of the recipe it says 35 minutes plus another 5 to 10 minutes. Which is correct?

    My daughter made this and added frozen corn and used mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar. It was delicious!

    This is amazing!! My kids gobbled it up! I added a little tomato bouillon and salt to the quinoa/bean mix and eliminated the cilantro and green onions because we don’t like them and it was so good. Will definitely be making this again!

    Very, very good. The filling was moist, but not soupy. I loved it!
