Quinoa stuffed bell peppers are healthy, yummy and easy to make. I have tried the stuffed bell peppers in a restaurant recently. The ones I tried are stuffed with beef mince. It was delicious so I thought to recreated it. Instead of beef mince, I choose to use quinoa. I am hooked on quinoa salad at the moment. I am not really a salad person. Recently the weather is amazing and I tend to grab quinoa salad for the hot sunny days. Am I the only one having this weird habit?

A few things that help

There are two different types of pesto sauce, the green one and the red one. I personally perfer the red pesto sauce for this recipe, it just mix well with all the flavours from all the ingredients.

Baking time varies depends on how big are the peppers, remember to check your peppers regularly during cooking.
