During the week I love easy recipes with minimum effort required. Sometimes I'm super busy and I try to order out as little as possible so it's crucial to me to have some staple recipes for easy lazy dinners.
These stuffed peppers are so delicious, super easy (because you can substitute any ingredients and tailor make the recipes to suit your preferences) and of course they're healthy!
If you're missing any ingredients or want to add more greens, that's perfectly good! This recipe is just a base recipe for any stuffed pepper filling of your choice!
Give them a try!
4 red peppers
2 dl Quinoa
1 dl yellow corn
1 dl green peas
1 chopped zucchini
1 can black beans
1 red onion
2 cloves garlic
1 can chopped tomato
1 can tomato purée
1 1/2 tbsp Oregano
1 1/2 tbsp Chili
1 1/2 tbsp Cumin
1 1/2 Pepper
1 1/2 Nutritional yeast (optional)
Cook the quinoa and set aside (follow instructions on the label)
Finely Chop onions, garlic and zucchini and rinse the black beans
Add a bit of water to a large pan (I don't cook with oil but feel free to use oil) and brown the onions and garlic
Add pepper, chili, cumin and oregano
Add the can of chopped tomato and tomato purée
Add zucchini, peas, corn and beans and let it simmer for 8-10 min
Add the Nutritional yeast and the quinoa and mix well
Rinse the red peppers and cut them diagonally (so you get 8 half)
Place them on a baking tray and fill the pepper "cups" with the quinoa filling
Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 min (depending on how soft you wan't the peppers)
Add the toppings of your choice
