Stuffed Bell Peppers
Serves 12 people
12 Bell peppers
3 lbs. Organic or local ground beef (In the photo: Kauai local grassfed beef)
2 Cups of Quinoa
1 Chopped Onion
1 Cup of Green Peas
1 Cup of Corn
1 Cup of Mixed Shredded Cheese
1 Tbs. Butter
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a pot, start cooking the quinoa (follow the directions on package)
In a separate pot, throw in the chopped onions with butter. Once the onions start to get a little soft put the ground beef in. Season with garlic salt (you decide how much you would like). When it's the beef is almost done cooking put in the green peas & corn. Add your cooked quinoa to the pot with the beef and veggies – turn off the stove.
Bell peppers – cut the top off and remove the seeds inside.
Place in a pan big enough for your peppers. Stuff your bell peppers with the beef and quinoa. Sprinkle shredded cheese. Put in the oven for about 20-30 minutes. Once your bell peppers start to look a little soft take them out and ENJOY! Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a side salad of your choice.
