Serves about 4

Ingredients: 

  • 4 orange bell peppers
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 ounce package frozen spinach, defrosted
  • About 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: 

  1. Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the quinoa, onion and spinach mixture, salt, pepper and Parmesan to a large bowl. Mix to combine.
  3. Meanwhile, de-seed the peppers and cut off the tops. Using a sharp, small paring knife, cut out eye, nose and mouth holes into the front of the peppers (to make the jack-o’-lanterns).
  4. Fill each pepper with about 1/2 cup of the quinoa mixture. Serve immediately.
