  • 4 bell peppers
  •  1 cup quinoa
  •  2 cups water
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  1 onion chopped
  •  2 cloves garlic minced
  •  2 cups spinach chopped
  •  1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped
  •  1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Cut off the upper sides of bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes.
  • First, using a fine-mesh strainer, thoroughly wash the quinoa, and then add it to water in a saucepan.
  • Olive oil should be heated in a big saucepan while the quinoa is cooking.
  • After absorbing the water, simmer the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After two to three minutes of cooking the garlic and onion, the onion should be transparent.
  • For around three minutes, let tomatoes and spinach boil in a pot.
  • Stir the cooked quinoa into the pot with the veggies after adding it. After removing it from the fire, pine nuts, fresh basil, salt, and pepper should be added.
  • Fill the bell peppers with the quinoa mixture, then stand them up in a baking dish.
  • If you want soft peppers with a browned top, bake them at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

Serving Suggestions for Bell Peppers Stuffed

Herb Garnish

Elevate your dish by generously garnishing the stuffed bell peppers with fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, or cilantro. This infusion of aromatic essences imparts refreshing flavors, adding a vivid touch to the gastronomic experience.

Refreshing Side Salad

Complement the flavor profile of the stuffed bell peppers with a rejuvenating side salad.

The refreshing crunch of the salad, in tandem with the stuffed peppers, introduces a delightful contrast and a healthful dimension to your meal.

Garlic Bread

Indulge your taste buds with a tantalizing accompaniment by serving delicious garlic bread alongside the stuffed bell peppers. Slice a baguette, spread garlic-infused butter on each slice, and toast them in the oven until they acquire a crispy golden exterior. The aromatic allure of the garlic bread perfectly complements the flavors of the savory quinoa and vegetables, culminating in a symphony of flavors with every bite.

Satisfying Roasted Potatoes

Embark on a gratifying epicurean experience by pairing the stuffed bell peppers with succulent roasted potatoes. Dice the potatoes, coat them in a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle them with salt, pepper, and your preferred herbs, and roast them in the oven until they develop a tantalizingly crispy and golden texture. The tender stuffed peppers, and the crispy roasted potatoes offer a deeply satisfying and well-balanced culinary delight.

Zesty Lemon Wedges
