Quinoa and Black Bean Stuffed Peppers

IMG_9404

I don’t often post recipes on my blog, except that one time I posted a play dough recipe, but that doesn’t really count :). My husband and I became vegetarians nearly a year and a half ago.  That has meant that we’ve become more creative with the kind of stuff we eat when we go out and when we cook at home. One of our favorite quick semi-healthy meals to eat is a Chipotle black bean burrito bowl.  While it is one of the healthier options on-the-go, there are a lot of added ingredients and sodium that aren’t so good for you.

I decided to try to make my own version with quinoa instead of brown rice.  We all know that quinoa is super healthy, but I happen to also like it because it cooks so quickly.  It was delicious the first time we made it and now it’s a regular dinner option around here.  This week, I decided to change things up and make my burrito bowls into stuffed peppers.  They were a huge hit!

And it's pretty too!

And it’s pretty too!
