Did you know... Precooked quinoa keeps well in the fridge or freezer, so you can make extra ahead to serve later. Before storing, toss it with a little olive oil to keep it from clumping.

Serves 4 as a side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bell pepper - any color
  • 1/2 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup onion - any color diced fine
  • 1 cup whole grain quinoa precooked
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup organic sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil sliced
  • 1/4 cup olives sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil sliced - plus garnish
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese

How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and place the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Slice each pepper in half and remove the core. Arrange the peppers on the baking dish and set aside.
  3. Warm the oil in a skillet over medium heat and sauté the garlic and onion for a few minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the precooked quinoa, salt and pepper, and then stir to combine.
  4. Reduce the heat to low. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, basil and feta, and then stir to combine.
  5. Spoon the mixture into each pepper until you have used all of the filling. Cover the baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, or turn the oven off and leave them in the oven with the door cracked until you're ready to serve. Garnish with fresh basil just before serving.
