Stuffed pepper

Stuffed pepper

So ever since trying quinoa a few months ago I’ve been in love. We made stuffed peppers that were so easy and great! The quinoa is cooked as normal then mixed with ground turkey meat and tomato sauce, put in a pepper and baked for 45 minutes. The yellow peppers are so sweet and the filling is amazing. Quinoa is a little high in carbs but unlike white rice it has so much fiber and vitamins so the swap is well worth it!

Quinoa “rice” balls

I had some cooked quinoa in the fridge and the craving for rice balls, so this happened. I mixed the quinoa with an egg and a little bit of parmesan cheese. I made them small as you can see from the picture but each one had a cube of fresh mozzarella in the middle and then were breaded with whole wheat bread crumbs and baked! With some homemade tomato sauce these were amazing! Everyone loved them!
