      roasted bell pepper stuffed with quinoa- loaded with flavor, inexpensive & healthy!

      4 Bell Peppers
      1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
      1 tbsp. coconut oil
      ½ Red Onion, chopped
      1 Cup Mushrooms, sliced
      1 Cup Carrots, grated
      1 Cup Baby Spinach
      1 tbsp. Dried Parsley
      ½ tsp.

      Ground Cinnamon
      ¼ tsp. Ground Cumin
      Salt and Pepper, to taste

      Preheat oven to 350 F.

      Cut the top of the peppers and discard membrane and seeds. Reserved the top for later.

      In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.

      Add onion and mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes.

      Add carrots, spinach and parsley, cooking until spinach is wilted. Sprinkle cinnamon, cumin and a dash of salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.

      Add quinoa and toss again, cooking an additional minute or 2.

      Divide quinoa mixture evenly among the 4 bell peppers. Top each pepper with its reserved top then arranges them upright in a glass-baking
      dish.

      Cover snugly with foil and bake for about 1 hour, checking halfway through, until peppers are tender and juicy.

      Transfer to plate and serve.
