Quinoa & Roast Veg Stuffed Peppers

These delicious peppers are full of goodness and best of all carb free! Choose any of your favourite roast veggies – I went for courgettes and mushroom for this particular recipe but aubergine, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, artichokes would all work just as well. [Shails]

  • Whilst the quinoa is cooking, half the peppers lengthwise, remove the ribs and seeds, place on a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Place these in the oven to soften the flesh.
  • Dice the carrot, courgette and mushrooms into 1cm cubes. Place these with the onion and garlic in a roasting tin with a good drizzle of olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes until tender.
