Quinoa Stuffed Vegan Peppers

I've been on vacation in New Hampshire with my family this week. So long as we stay away from certain hot-topics including Obama, gun control, immigration, and Chik-fil-A, everyone's been getting along fairly well.

Timeout! Hoping to actually upgrade the overall design with my current website. Thoughts regarding the overall branding at http://lifewellness.ca? Undeniably an exceptional fitness blog that cares if, perhaps seeking within the Saskatchewan territory. Make a remark. Thx!

I thought I would have time to take tons of food pictures/study for the GREs, but I'm too busy paddle boarding,hiking and competing in backyard Olympics, so here's a picture-heavy post of one of my favorite recipes that I made a few weeks ago.

Quinoa Stuffed Vegan Peppers

Red, yellow & orange peppers we're on sale at Harris Teeter one day, which is rarer and more exciting than a solar eclipse, so I bought a bunch and made stuffed peppers. These are a complete meal with carrots, black beans, quinoa, and spinach all inside.

Random side note - I've been watching the Olympics this week and I'm so curious about what they eat on a regular basis. Especially the gymnasts. I also want to know how they get into those super shiny tight leotards. Are there zippers I can't see? I'm intrigued.

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers Recipe

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 ribs celery, finely chopped ( cup)

2. Stir in black beans, quinoa, carrots, and 2 cups water. Cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender. Stir in 1 cup nutritional yeast. Season with salt and pepper.
