Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare the limited number of foods that Bubs can eat.  I saw a pic of stuffed peppers and thought that I could make this with quinoa.  Here's how I made them.

6 green peppers
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed
1 c water
Italian Seasoning (or any other seasonings you like)

Preheat oven to 350º.  Cook quinoa on stove top. (1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of water.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and steam for another 10 minutes.)  Meanwhile, slice of tops of green peppers and remove seeds and membranes. 

Mix together cooked quinoa, beans, and water.  Add Italian seasoning to taste.  Spoon into peppers.  Bake for about an hour.  You can easily add meat of your choice along with any other seasonings you prefer.  I chose these ingredients based on Bubs' elimination diet. 

Bubs and GirlyGirl LOVED these.  As GirlyGirl said, "These are AWESOME!"  I'd say this recipe is a keeper!
