After watching an episode of Martha Stewart the other day that was focused on healthy eating, in particular the benefits of eating quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah), I decided to dust off the quinoa box and give it a shot. One of the suggestions was to use it to substitute rice in a dish. I had just bought several beautiful red and orange peppers, so I figured I’d stuff them with quinoa. The end result was phenominal. Even my fussy little eaters were gobbling up the peppers. It was definitely a successful experiment. I hope you will dust off your box of quinoa (or go buy a fresh one) and give this one a try! It’s worth the effort to make the orange-chipotle glaze for this one. The recipe follows. Enjoy!
