Fiesta Stuffed Red Peppers!

IMG_3589I made this for a meatless monday meal for the family that I cook for twice a week! It turned out really great and people have been asking me to post this recipe…so here it is!









  • 3 organic red bell peppers (peppers are on the dirty dozen list!)
  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 head green onions chopped
  • 1 can black beans or 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp himalayan sea salt
  • optional: goat or feta cheese to top with!


  • Cut red bell peppers in half (hot dog style) and bake at 350 for 10 minutes on one side and 10 minutes on the other side.
  • Meanwhile, cook your quinoa stove top and chop your tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro!
  • Once the quinoa has cooked, add in black beans, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, salt, and cumin.
  • When the peppers are done stuff them with your quinoa mixture and top with goat or feta cheese if you want to!
  • Place your stuffed peppers back in the oven for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese and then enjoy!
  • I served this with greek yogurt that I mixed with cumin, cayenne pepper, sea salt, and garlic. You can also use your favorite mexican seasoning! I also stir fried green peppers, onions, and mushrooms for a side!
