Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
You can really clean out your fridge and use any vegetables you like. It would be nice to use an eggplant along with the zucchini, but really anything will do. The fresh mint and parsley is key, though…so much fresh flavored in there. I’ve also cooked stuffed peppers the traditional way where you cut off the top and leave them standing, but I find that this way just makes way more sense. It’s faster and easier and I can’t argue with that. I’ve used quinoa for the grain here because I love the amount of protein it provides but you could experiment with rice, orzo, couscous, buckwheat, farro, etc. You could top them off with a baba ganoush flavored hummus.

  3. While peppers and quinoa are cooking, heat up olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic, and onion and cook a few minutes until onions are translucent. Add zucchini, carrot, cumin, and chilli flakes. Cook a couple minutes, covered. Add swiss chard, and tomatoes and cook until chard is wilted. Stir in salt, pepper, and a handful of chopped fresh mint and parsley. Add the quinoa to the veggie mixture and stir until combined.
