How have I never shared stuffed peppers with you?! Shame on me. It is, like the ultimate convenience lunch/dinner. Super easy to pack and even eat on go, deliciously flavourful and super nutritious. These Easy Quinoa Stuffed Peppers are my favourite way to make stuffed peppers. They’re super customisable by the way, and more than likely you have these ingredients already in your pantry and fridge. YAY for stuffed peppers!
So, let’s talk these easy quinoa stuffed peppers. You could, by the way, easily use brown rice, but I’m a huge quinoa addict. Quinoa goes well with everything, is loaded with protein, and so foolproof and easy to make. You can make the quinoa right before, or the night before. Either way, it’s easy and tastes great with all the other ingredients.
The stuffed peppers are as easy as mixing all the ingredients in a skillet over heat, to soften the onions and garlic, and then stuffing the peppers. Seriously, easy as pie. Well, savoury pie.
These are my favourite ingredients, but jalapeños would also taste amazingly in these. That’s one of the best parts about stuffed peppers – Spanish style, tex Mex, pizza or even cuban style, it’s totally up to you. I used large bell peppers for these and one can easily serve a single person for dinner. There’s so little work required here you could actually make these after a long day for dinner.
These quinoa stuffed peppers also last great in the fridge – hello meal prep magic!! Cooking the peppers for 40 minutes is more to soften the peppers than anything, but you could also do this on a grill if you want. Beautifully charred skin would go SO well with these.
Try these for your next weekly dinner and I guarantee you’ll love it. P.S., I love my peppers soft, but still intact. If you want them to be super soft and buttery, you can blanch the peppers in hot water before and then drain them. It’s totally up to you!
