Matt is very busy in the kitchen. He's taking charge of the meal planning for the next few days, and he is doing lots of prep work. I went in briefly to get some water- there he was chopping, packaging, and labeling lots of goodies. I'm excited to see what the next few days bring...
I used the iPhone to snap a photo of my stuff peppers from last night!
It's a Stuffed Pepper, and it's organic (bonus!). Matt's mom gave us these peppers last weekend so I used them to create a protein stuffed pepper.
Protein Filled Peppers
What you'll need:
1 small onion
1 clove garlic
2 cups spinach
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne (if you like it hot!)
1 cup tomato sauce of your choice
1 cup quinoa (dry)
2 cups water
2 bell peppers (any color)
How to do it:
1- Cook the quinoa in the 2 cups of water.
2- Meanwhile in a pan saute the onion, garlic, and spinch in a little olive oil.
3- When the spinach has cooked down add the remaining ingredients, then the cooked quinoa. Mix it all up.
4- Cut the two bell pepper in half, removing the ribs and seeds. Then stuff them full of your awesome mixture.
5- Bake at 375* for about 30 minutes.
