What is Quinoa

Quinoa (keen-wah) is a seed that is most commonly used as a grain. It has a nutty, earthy flavor and a slightly crunchy texture.

It has been around for centuries, and is considered a superfood because of its many health benefits.

Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and fiber, and contains antioxidants and minerals.

It can be cooked in many different ways, making it a versatile addition to any diet.

  • Add Italian style diced tomatoes with the liquid, water, 1 teaspoon salt, and quinoa. Stir to mix well.

  • In the meantime, prepare the bell peppers by cutting the tops off, and removing the core, and seeds.
  • Slice across the bottom of the peppers to make a flat surface so they can stand up, Don't cut up to the hollow part of the pepper, just cut enough to make them stand.
  • Arrange the peppers on the prepared baking sheet.
  • When the quinoa is soft, add in chick peas, kalamata olives, and pesto. Stir to mix well.
  • Fill each pepper with approximately 1 cup of the filling mixture.
  • In the preheated oven, bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
  • Take the baking sheet out of the oven, and sprinkle the top of each pepper with feta cheese.
  • Place the peppers back in the oven for approximately 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted slightly.
