Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
15 mins 45 mins 1 hr 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bell peppers (any color)
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

Special Notes:

  • Feel free to use any color of bell peppers you prefer. Each color has a slightly different taste and sweetness.
  • If you don't have vegetable broth, you can use water instead, but the broth adds extra flavor.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Place the peppers in a baking dish and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the quinoa and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
  4. While the quinoa is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until fragrant and translucent.
  5. Add the zucchini, carrot, and corn to the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Stir in the cooked quinoa, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine all the flavors.
  7. Spoon the quinoa mixture into each bell pepper, filling them to the top. Place the pepper tops back on.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the bell peppers are tender and slightly charred.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

Serving Suggestions

These Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers make a satisfying and wholesome meal on their own. However, you can also serve them with a side salad or some crusty bread for a complete and filling dinner. They are perfect for a vegan-friendly weeknight dinner or a special occasion. Enjoy!
