Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil.  Add 1/2 cup quinoa and reduce heat to medium low.  Cover and cook 15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.
  3. Meanwhile, boil another large pot of water.  Add the bell peppers, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.  Carefully remove the peppers from the water with tongs and make sure all the water is removed from the inside.
  4. While the peppers are boiling, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini (and yellow squash, if using) and mushrooms and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add the basil, salt, pepper, and cooked quinoa.  Stir in the cheese until it starts to melt.
  5. Carefully stuff each pepper with 1/2 cup of the quinoa mixture.  Bake in a casserole dish for 15 minutes.  Optional: I turned on the broiler for the last minute to brown the tops.
