Top-ranked recipe named "Roasted Bell Peppers Stuffed with Quinoa"
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally until transparent, 8 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until softened, 4 to 5 minutes more. Add carrots and chopped peppers, cook until just softened, then add parsley and spinach (in batches, if needed). Let spinach wilt then stir in cinnamon, cumin and cooked quinoa and toss gently to combine. Add salt, pepper and cashews and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Set aside to let filling cool until just warm.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350?F. Grease a 9- x 13-inch baking pan with oil then set aside.
Divide quinoa mixture evenly among remaining 6 bell peppers, gently packing it down and making sure to fully fill each pepper. Top each pepper with its reserved top then arrange them upright in prepared pan. Cover snugly with foil and bake, checking halfway through, until peppers are tender and juicy and filling is hot throughout, about 1 hour. Transfer to plates and serve

rosemaryinwheat 9 months agoRoasted bell peppers are a favourite texture, and I like the combination of cumin and cinnamon in this recipe, but the filling was still missing something. The fleeting taste I got of the toasty bits at the top of the pepper tell me it might be as simple as halving the peppers to allow more room for the filling to dry/roast.
nayfly 1 year agoSomewhat bland but add more spices and would be good enough to eat again. Filling!
kattie-lynnyonko 1 year agoThe spices were overpowering. There was too much going on with it. Tried making it again and adapting it, but it was still a bad combination.
