Sweet bell peppers, stuffed, cooked then baked to perfection. These quinoa stuffed bell peppers are light yet filling, very tasty and good for you!
Hi everyone! How was your Easter weekend? I figure we all need a break from all that sugar and chocolate, yes? So here’s a delicious, light and savoury dish for you. And yes, Red made it and I am relegated to the role of documentarian once again. Though TBH I’m liking the sound of that!
More savoury dishes coming to TUB
So maybe I’d get Red to do more recipes for the blog (I’ll ask nicely). And maybe I’ll start to learn how to cook some on my own! Here are a few of the savoury dishes we have so far:
Anyway, I was telling one of my IG friends (are we IG friends? Check out my feed!) that some people might be under the impression that I eat sugary things all day everyday.
While it’s a valid assumption, Red and I actually try to lead a healthy-ish lifestyle.
We do CrossFit, eat veggies and protein most of the time and, when the weather doesn’t hurt our eyeballs, we love to go out on our bicycles. I’m not a 100% health nut though. I do love my wine, have an epic sweet tooth (I blame my mom) and go on couch potato mode most winter. So everything in moderation, I guess?
What happens to all that cake?
So what happens to all the cakes and the cookies and the bars that I bake for the blog? We give most of it away. We keep about a fourth of everything (we’re not that nice) but the rest go to co-workers, neighbours and family. Weee! Spread the calories! They make awesome taste-testers too.
Quinoa stuffed bell peppers
Moving on to these quinoa stuffed bell peppers. It has all the good stuff in it – quinoa, vegetables…ketchup (you know Filipinos love ketchup!) – then it’s topped with even more goodness – cheese and toasted almonds.
It’s not a vegetarian dish but it’s totally customizable.

Main or side, you decide
We eat these on its own though you can totally serve them alongside heavier dishes. And while we’ve never served them at a party, you can totally do it. Just look how pretty they are. With cute little hats and everything.
So if you ever need something light and sorta kinda healthy but totally delicious, make some quinoa stuffed bell peppers. We can have a slice of cake tomorrow.
Happy cooking and baking!
