How to Make Quinoa Stuffed Red Pepper:

3. Dice garlic and onion. Sauté in olive oil over medium heat.

4. Add quinoa to boiling water, cover, and reduce to medium-low heat, and simmer 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender. Add garlic and onion to quinoa. (You can also add salt and pepper for additional flavor.)

5. Remove bell peppers from the oven, drain any moisture from the inside, and stuff each bell pepper half with a large scoop of the quinoa mix.
