Stuffed peppers were always a favorite dinner growing up! I was always very excited to have my own pepper to eat. Since I no longer eat meat I started playing with the recipe. Substituting quinoa for meat and chili for marinara sauce. I like substituting chili in because of the additional protein from the beans.
What you need:
4 large green peppers
1 cups cooked Quinoa per pepper ( maybe more or less depending on the size of the green pepper)
4- 5 cups chili ( I freeze my chili when I make it & pull it out)
Pre heat oven 350
Clean green peppers and cut the tops scoop out seeds etc.
Mix together quinoa & chili
Carefully stuff the peppers with the quinoa & chili mixture
In a baking dish add 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of the dish
Then place stuffed peppers standing up, cover with tin foil
Bake in the oven for 45 mins
Add some chili to the top and serve
