Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Just got these pictures back from Scott of our “post-workout” meal at his place following our hike up Mt Cardigan.

When we got back, of course, everyone was rather famished, but we hadn’t planned what to make. However, like a mystery box challenge, there were certain ingredients in absolute need of being used up. They had a bounty of bell peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant.

After a little thought, it was agreed we would make vegan stuffed peppers with the tomatoes and eggplant as part of the filling, the base of which was to be quinoa and brown rice. For seasonings, we featured basil and oregano, and deemed them Italian stuffed peppers.

Scott’s cousin had also made a lovely bean salad the night before. It had at least three different types of beans (kidney, chickpea, white, and I believe pinto), carrots, red onions, parsley, agave syrup, and probably some other stuff I’m missing.

The final product was amazing and we were all extremely proud of our impromptu feast. Hunger was not long an issue. ;)

With apologies for the lack of measurements…
