Quinoa Unstuffed Peppers


The name Quinoa Unstuffed Peppers may sound confusing but there is nothing confusing about how good this Israeli inspired dish really is.

Instead of the usual, more common recipe, of giant red and green peppers stuffed with a rice and ground meat mixture, I have unstuffed the peppers, chopped them and added them to the mix with quinoa, Italian sausage and the perfect amount of seasonings.

To make Quinoa Unstuffed Peppers, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Quinoa Unstuffed Peppers


Cook quinoa

In a small saucepan, bring 1½ cup of vegetable stock to a boil and then add ¾ cup of rinsed quinoa. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 12-15 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.


Cook meat mixture

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine 1 pound of crumbled turkey sausage, 1 chopped sweet red pepper, 1 chopped green pepper and ¾ cup of chopped sweet onion. Cook for 8-10 minutes until no longer pink.


Add garlic and seasoning

Add 1 clove of minced garlic, ¼ teaspoon of garam masala, ¼ teaspoon of pepper and ⅛ teaspoon of salt. Cook while stirring for about 1 minute until fragrant.


Add quinoa

Stir in the cooked quinoa and mix well.



Serve hot and enjoy!

the taste was actually really good the presentation was average, hence the 4 stars.

Sausages in it seemed a bit stale but still the taste was absolutely amazing. I still do prefer the Classic stuffed peppers over this one though.
