Ingredients
Stuffed Peppers
  • 4 bell peppers (sliced in half, seeds and ribs removed)
  • 1/2 bell pepper (not the ones above for slicing in half...an additional one) (any color), diced
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper (diced) (I used one from a jar, but you could roast your own if you wish)
  • 3/4 cup artichoke hearts (chopped)
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (halved) (or cherry tomatoes, quartered)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (diced)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • juice of 1 lemon
Red Pepper Sauce
Instructions
For the stuffed peppers:
  1. Preheat the oven 350 degrees F.
  2. Arrange your halved bell peppers in one layer in the bottom of a 9x11 casserole dish, cut side up and set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the diced bell pepper, roasted red pepper, artichokes, chickpeas, quinoa, grape tomatoes, parsley, diced garlic, 1 tsp cumin, oregano, juice of 1 lemon and 1/4 cup tahini and mix well.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the peppers in your casserole dish. Fill them up to the top.
  5. Drizzle about half of the Red Pepper Sauce (directions below) onto the stuffed peppers.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until heated through.
  7. Drizzle with the remaining Red Pepper Sauce before serving.
For the Red Pepper Sauce:
  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. You can thin with a bit of water if desired.
