Quinoa Stuffed Peppers (a Top Ten recipe)

Do you all have those recipes that your whole fam loves so much it seems like you make it once a week?
They're healthy, easy & quick, and most important: so so good.
Well this is one of ours.
It has made it into our Top Ten rotation in fact :)
More than likely if you come over for dinner more than a couple times you'll be having Quinoa Stuffed Peppers with us.
Hope you love them as much as us!

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
(print it here if you like)


  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves, crushed garlic
  • 1 (15 oz) can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can black beans
  • ½ can (about ¾ cup) corn
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 4 large bell peppers (cut in half length-wise)
  • ½ cup grated cheese


  • Heat oil over medium heat & add oil+onion about 5 minutes until tender.
  • Add garlic & saute for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat & add tomatoes, beans, corn, quinoa, spices & vinegar.
  • Scoop mixture into peppers & top with cheese.
  • Arrange in an 8x8 pan & fill bottom of pan with about ½ inch of water.
  • Cover with foil & cook 40 minutes.

PS Sometimes I use rotel instead of diced tomatoes when I'm feeling extra spicy.
PPS Also I use rice cheese of course which makes this a vegan AND gluten free recipe.
