Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

 


We love stuffed peppers at our house.
Our dad is usually the one to make them - he just seems to have the knack to make them perfect. He usually uses hamburger and rice and makes them spicy.
Sue's daughter, Kenzie, and I figured we would give them a go and try to make them a little healthier. We decided to go the vegetarian route and, instead of rice, try some quinoa.
We started going through the cupboards and fridge and this is what we ended up with. I think our collaboration turned out pretty good.
Definitely will be making this again! It is easy, fairly quick, and very tasty.
