This is for the days when you want to put together a quick meal with very little ingredients and with easy-to-grab pantry and grocery items.
It is also good for you. Veggies, grains, and legumes equals fiber, proteins, and nutrients! There’s also cheese in there for the calcium… just kidding. I put cheese on anything. It’s delicious.
Okay, if you look at my most recent recipes, which included a whole lot of desserts, pasta, and noodles, you would know that my December has not been a healthy one. That’s only showing what I put on the blog and it’s not even Christmas yet.
Anyway, quinoa and black bean stuffed bell peppers was just what I needed and it is so, so delish. I felt pretty good afterwards.
Now onto the recipe.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper. Prepare your ingredients.
In a large bowl, mix together the filling ingredients.
Fill each bell pepper half with filling. Place in the baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Top with additional toppings if you would like.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
