Roasting peppers makes them tender and sweet and the perfect vessel for holding all our nutritious goodies. The filling is an array of textures and flavors and a satisfying meal. This dish comes together pretty quickly if you have cooked quinoa and lentils on hand. I like to make big batches of grains for the week and store them in the fridge for speedy meals.
