Recipe: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Quinoa and Bean Stuffed Peppers

These stuffed peppers make a cheap and easy family meal and perfect starter or healthy lunch recipe. You could fill them with your choice of mince, rice or any vegetables but I’ve gone for quinoa and kidney beans, which is a great vegetarian option.

I’ve also topped mine with mashed avocado, greek yoghurt and spring onions but you could also try salsa too.

Hope you enjoy!
