Happy Meatless Monday!
Stuffed peppers are a fabulous addition to any weeknight dinner. Most recipes consist of the same four or five ingredients, just with a slight twist. Whether it’s rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice as your base, you truly cannot go wrong! It’s great because you can cater it around your own dietary restrictions. VERY FLEXIBLE. But for this particular recipe, I used quinoa since it was what I had on hand at the time in my freezer. Yes, sometimes the decision for ingredients is just that easy. The Trader Joe’s freezer section saving the dinner game once again with their Microwavable Quinoa packets!
This is the epitome of a simple supper!
Pretty sure I’ve convinced you this is what you need to make for dinner tonight!
Bursting with earthy flavor from the cumin and a tad bit of spice from the Meatless Crumbles, this dish is the perfect balance of hearty and healthy. Check out the recipe below…
