Here’s a meatless, healthy dinner recipe for you: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers.
There are so many reasons to love today’s post. It’s Monday, and everyone is happy on Monday, right? Monday is known as “meatless Monday,” which is a nice stray away from your family’s usual meat-focused dinner, so I’ve got some beautiful quinoa stuffed peppers for you. And we’re celebrating the new Skinnytaste Cookbook by my sweet and talented friend Gina Homolka.
Listen to me now and trust what I’m going to say next. The Skinnytaste Cookbook is officially being released tomorrow, and it’s going to be HUGE. It’s already been selling well for weeks before the official release, but I’m telling you that this one is going to be a New York Times Best Seller. Plan to buy it or put it on your wish list because you’re going to want this one on your bookshelf FOR SURE.
Gina is so super talented at making skinny versions of delicious recipes. The book is very well written, and it’s filled with all kinds of “skinny” recipes you’re going to want to try.
I’m excited to try the following: Coconut Chicken Salad with Warm Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese, Baked Zucchini Sticks, Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Guiltless Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Mongolian Beef and Broccoli, Kiss My Shrimp and Grits, Vegetable Fried Brown Rice, Quinoa Tabbouleh and Silky Chocolate Cream Pie. There are so many good ideas in this book! All recipes contain nutritional information too!
These quinoa stuffed peppers are stuffed with a tomato-based, cheesy quinoa filling. They’re a delicious and filling main dish, and you can feel good that you’re not eating too much for dinner. My husband and I loved them. My kiddo happily ate the filling, but he pushed away the peppers (ignore him though… he’s a picky and opinionated 13-year old who is set in his ways, for the time being!)
Give these quinoa stuffed peppers a try for a meatless family dinner! And be sure to check out The Skinnytaste Cookbook. I think you’ll be very happy to have it in your collection!
