Stuffed Peppers

This is one of my favourite, light but equally filling dinners. It's the perfect meal for a summer evening! 

You will need: 

Quinoa (1/2 cup, 1 cup water)

1 pepper 

1 tsp chilli powder

Pesto (I use one made with cashews not cheese, but normal is fine too!)

Coconut Oil 


- Boil quinoa for 20 minutes until cooked

- Cut in half and put a little bit of coconut oil in the bottom of each half before lightly grilling for 5 minutes. 

- Take the peppers out and prepare the stuffing

- Mix the quinoa with a tablespoon of pesto and a little chilli powder. 

- Fill the peppers and top with mozzarella and grind some pepper on top

- Grill until the mozzarella looks like the photo!
