Quinoa Stuff Mini Bell Peppers Recipe
You may use either boxed or plain quinoa.
Follow the directions on package for pre-packaged quinoa or for plain quinoa…
The ratio is 1 cup of uncooked quinoa to 2 cups of liquid. Bring quinoa and liquid to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Get a few mini bell peppers. If they stand upright cut the stems, if they don’t, I choose to cut the tips to get more to mix in the quinoa.
Once you quinoa is ready set aside.Sauté the chopped bell peppers in olive oil. You may also add finely chopped onions. Add one clove of mined garlic once bell peppers are almost done.Add spices at the end. A pinch of Spanish Paprika, Turmeric, and Parsley. Finely chop or grate some Manchego cheese into the still warm quinoa and saving some for later.Add the sauted bell peppers, cheese, and capers to taste to the quinoa.Stuff mini bell peppers with quinoa. Sprinkle remaining chopped or grated cheese over peppers. For a small portion, like mine you may use a toaster oven for about 10 minutes on 400 degrees. For larger portion use the oven preheated to 350 degrees and cook for 15-18 minutes. Then allow to cool.Enjoy as a tapa for gatherings, as a healthy appetizer, or as an easy lunch for yourself. Pair with Alhambra Reserva 1925 and you’ve got a good time.
