Rainbow Stuffed Peppers

12 February 2015

I created this Rainbow Stuffed Pepper recipe on a hangover day! I was actually really craving clean food, and I had one perfect pepper in the fridge (huge, actually stands up). It was a no brainer, stuffed peppers it was! I kinda threw some veg together and this was the result! Yummy and (almost) healthy!

Ingredients (to serve one) 
1 yellow pepper
1/3 cup quinoa
A selection of colourful veg, I used red pepper, spinach, red cabbage and grated carrot
Stock cube
Salt & pepper
Coconut oil
Seed mix

The Recipe 
1) Cut the top off the pepper and take out the seeds. Pop your pepper on a tray and roast at gas mark 6 for 20 mins.
2) Meanwhile, wash your quinoa and cover with water. Crumble in a stock cube.
3) Chop your veg and fry in a 1/2 tsp of coconut oil until as soft as you like, I like mine quite crunchy. 
4) Drain any excess water from the quinoa if necessary and mix with the veg. 
5) Toast the walnuts and seeds (I used sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and pine nuts) in a dry frying pan until the pumpkin seeds pop.  
6) Mix into the quinoa/veg and season with salt and pepper and chives. 
7) Stuff this mix into the pepper and top with some cheese. Bake for 10 mins until melted. 

I hope you enjoyed my Rainbow Stuffed Pepper recipe.
