|Quinoa is gluten free and oh so yummy.|
I love stuffed bell peppers. It can be a whole meal in one or a garden salad can be served with it. I prefer red, orange or yellow bell peppers to the green because they are sweeter. These freeze well making them perfect for a quick meal.

|Cut the stems out of each bell pepper, making sure to clean out the guts.|
|Add about a cup of water to the bottom of a baking dish then add the bell peppers.|
|I love the texture that the quinoa gives the filling. So delicious.|
