Recipe

Looking for an easy meatless dish for the slow cooker?& These simple White Bean and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers are the perfect solution. The quinoa cooks right in the peppers in the slow cooker so you don't have to cook it in advance and the diced tomatoes bring a delicious Italian inspired flavor. You can add extra veggies, fresh herbs, and even ricotta cheese to amp up the flavors as well. And since these freeze great, making a big batch is a great idea so you can store some leftovers for future quick meals.

    This was a hearty and flavorful meal! My peppers were a touch small, so I divided the filling between six peppers instead of three. I also let it go a bit long, so the peppers were a tad overdone. Flavor was still excellent!
