Quinoa + Peppers = Food Bliss!

I love having a meal that is as healthy as it is satisfying. That harmonious combo does not occur often, so when it does, I get pretty excited. My friend* blogged about her quinoa-stuffed bell pepper recipe recently and it sounded intriguingly tasty, so I had to try it....

.....the result? It was so tasty that the peppers were gobbled up so quickly that no pictures were taken! I used yellow bell peppers (my favs!), chopped up one medium-sized red potato to replace one of the kinds of beans (she used garbanzo and black beans, I used great northern beans + potato), and layered in a little shredded cheese. Since that variation turned out so well I can't wait to try other kinds in the future!

Any deliciously healthy meals you love? Foods you can't live without? Who are my yellow pepper fans?! Holla!

*check out her blog (she is way better at posting than I am) and her awesome etsy store!

  1. The potato substitution sounds like a good idea! I am definitely going try that next :)
