Stuffed Peppers with Black Beans and Quinoa

Dinner, Main Dish, Vegan

These Stuffed Peppers with Black Beans and Quinoa were a delicious meal that was quick and easy to make.  I placed the peppers on a baking sheet and sprinkled them with olive oil, black pepper and Himalayan salt.    The peppers were stuffed with rainbow quinoa, black beans and chopped tomatoes.  I used some harissa paste, which added a kick to them.  The peppers were full of flavor!

Mom’s Organic is another great place to buy fresh veggies and baking ingredient’s.  Their assortment of fresh produce is outstanding.  Check out my Shop Page for a nice selection of kitchen essentials like slicers, cutting boards, food prep bowls and more.
