My favorite dinners are ones that you can whip up quickly and have the ability to make some yummy lunches too!
A super, simple, weeknight meal that will satisfy even the hungriest of belly's. Typically one 1/2 pepper will do per person. Try some roasted sweet potatoes on the side or a big green salad.
- 4 sweet peppers
- 2 cups of cooked quinoa
- 1 cup of cooked black beans
- 2 tbs of parsley (fresh)
- 1 tbs of rosemary (fresh)
- 3 tbs olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Wash and cut peppers in half so that they form a bowl
In a mixing bowl, mix together the cooked quinoa, beans, herbs and olive oil
Scoop your mixture into the peppers
Bake for 30 mins and enjoy!
