Gluten-Free Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

1lb of grass-fed ground beef
1 cup uncooked tricolor quinoa
3 oz Fontina cheese cubed
2 cups of fresh spinach
3 large peppers
1 oz Asiago and Fontina shredded cheese
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of coconut oil

How to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Start the Quinoa – it should take about 15-20 minutes to cook depending on what brand you buy
  3. Wash and clean out the peppers to make a big empty pepper cup.
  4. Brown the beef with the coconut oil in a skillet. Once it’s almost done, add the spinach in and cover for about 3-4 minutes until the spinach has wilted into the meat. You might want to stir it in so it’s not just sitting on top.
  5. When the quinoa is done, add the Fontina cheese and the beef mix. Get everything melted and into a nice consistency.
  6. Use a casserole or meatloaf dish to put the peppers in. Fill them up with the mixture and put in the oven for about 17 minutes (we like our peppers a little crispy but if you want them soft, you should leave them in longer).
  7. Take them out at the timer and add the shredded cheese on the top of them along with the Parmesan cheese. We are a cheesy household so you can put as much or as little as you would like on the top.
  8. Bake for another 4-5 minutes so the cheese can melt. Take them out and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
