Stuffed Bell Peppers

Good Morning and happy Friday!

Last night I tried out a new recipe for stuffed bell peppers. The secret ingredient is Quinoa! Quinoa is a grain considered to be a complete protein filled with nutrients such as, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and fiber. It can be used as a substitute for flour, as oatmeal, rice, but in this case I used it as a filling!
