Dirty Quinoa finished

Even a food blogger gets a little lazy come dinner time. Now, we’re not talking eating cold Chef Boyardee directly out of the can, but… close.

This recipe evolved from an evening our fit stuffed bell peppers were on the menu, but we just couldn’t be bothered with all that blanching, stuffing and baking time.

Dirty Quinoa ingredients

We diced up the peppers and basically dumped all the ingredients in one big skillet. Then we renamed it and this recipe was born. Luckily for you, this dish is delicious and crazy easy.

For those of you unfamiliar with quinoa, it is a grain-like seed that is a great source of high-quality protein. Vegetarians and vegans use quinoa religiously for their protein needs they don’t get from meat. It is also gluten-free and a complex carb. The more you know. *shooting star*

Also, it is pronounced “keen-wa.” Don’t sound stupid when you tell all your friends about this recipe.
