Turkey Quinoa Black Bean Stuffed Peppers

If you’ve never had stuffed bell peppers, now is the time.  Not only are these things delicious but they are really healthy! If you’re like me, flavor is not the only key player in a good meal; texture also plays a significant role in the foods you like. The textures and flavors are great complements.  The crunch of the pepper and the juicy turkey and quinoa are an amazing combination.

Although I made this meal, I cannot take complete credit for it.  Earlier this week I stumbled upon A Pinch Of Yum.  Lindsay’s recipes are not only great but I aspire to take pictures as good as her as well.  She really knows how to make a great blog and if you get a chance I would strongly recommend you check it out.  My favorite thing about her blog is when you comment and ask questions she is very responsive.  I’m hoping to get a tool to add nutrition facts to all of these meals as soon as possible!

Anyway, back to the recipe.  Lindsay’s recipe looked great but it lacked one thing I really require in almost every meal.  MEAT! So, my wife took the liberties to modify it a bit and came up with something we will be cooking a lot more often.  If you have never tried Quinoa, don’t be afraid.  It’s really delicious and is almost like rice.  Although Lindsay’s recipe used a crock pot, I forgot to put them together in the morning so my wife ended up cooking them in the oven. Next time I’ll try out the crock pot and tell you what I think.
