Quinoa Stuffed Peppers: VeganMoFo #10

I'm a Veganwannabe: Post #10
(half way! I can't believe the Vegan Month of Food is half over!)

Look what I created! The peppers were on sale. The quinoa was calling to me.  Mushrooms and shallots were hiding in the back of the fridge. The thyme was in a pot on my deck. The cherry tomatoes were from my garden .

I sautéed mushrooms and shallots. I cooked red quinoa in vegetable broth. I cleaned and opened up the peppers. I stuffed the peppers with quinoa. I topped them with the sautéed mushrooms and shallots. Of course I drizzled the whole thing with olive oil. I baked in 350 oven for an hour and then let them sit for a while because I hate a crunchy stuffed pepper. I served these beauties with some leftover roasted poblano cream. HEAVENLY!

Now I have a crud-load of leftover red quinoa…. I guess that’s what happens to us newbie vegans! What to do?

  1. These peppers look pretty! I bet they were tasty. I would say that if the quinoa was plain, you can use it to make a delicious hot cereal for breakfast, but probably not after being cooked in vegetable broth - LOL. You can mix it together with different herbs and then make little cakes/fritters....
