Quinoa is a superfood and is one of the healthiest grains that you can eat.
Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein, and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids.
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and various beneficial antioxidants.

Spinach & Artichoke Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 cup baby spinach chopped
- 1/2 cup cannellini beans drained and rinsed
- 1/2 avocado diced
- 1 clove garlic grated
- 1/2 cup quartered artichoke hearts roughly chopped
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese plus more for topping
- 3 bell peppers any color
Preheat oven to 450º. Cut bell peppers in half, and remove seeds. Spray both sides lightly with olive oil spray. Place cut-side-down in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine all other ingredients with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Remove peppers from oven and scoop quinoa mixture into bell peppers. Top each with a tablespoon of shredded cheese.
Turn oven down to 350º. Cover dish with foil and place back into oven for 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and quinoa mixture is hot.
Pro tips: Spraying the underside of the foil before covering the baking dish will help the foil to not stick.
