Quinoa and Veggie Stuffed Bell Peppers

Don’t you love finding easy, healthy dinner ideas the whole family will eat? We’re pretty sure we heard you shout “Yes!” These quinoa-stuffed bell peppers are the real deal. You can use any color bell pepper: red and orange have a sweeter flavor, but yellow and green also work. Made with onions, zucchini and protein-packed quinoa, they’re vegetarian-friendly if you use veggie stock. They're easy to customize for any diet. If you want added protein, mix in a little grass-fed beef. If you’re not a fan of goat cheese, use mozzarella and warm in the oven until the cheese bubbles. They really can please everyone!Quinoa & Veggie Healthy Stuffed Bell Peppers on Wood Cutting Board | Vitacost.com/blog
