Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack in upper third.
  2. Slice a thin layer from the base of each pepper so it sits upright. Slice off tops, remove ribs and seeds. Discard stems, chop tops.
  3. In medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat.

  5. Add quinoa and cook 1 minute. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until water has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 11 minutes.

  8. Stuff peppers with quinoa mixture. Place in 2 quart baking dish.
  9. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until peppers are tender, about 1 hour.
