Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

These peppers are stuffed with ground turkey, quinoa, crushed tomatoes, feta and pine nuts.  You could use goat cheese and walnuts instead, if that’s what you have on hand.  Andra loves to substitute completely unrelated items for ingredients called for in recipes, so she’d probably use Cheese Whiz and peanuts.

Another picture below with their tops on, if the topless photo made you uncomfortable.

We love the addition of quinoa instead of rice, found in most traditional stuffed pepper recipes.  This ends up feeling comforting and healthy at the same time.  So you should definitely have another glass of wine with it.
