Ingredients

  • 3 bell peppers sliced and seeds removed
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup chickpeas rinsed
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta or more
  • 1-2 tbsp harissa

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Start by cooking the quinoa. While the quinoa is cooking, slice the peppers in half and remove the seeds. Place peppers face up in a baking sheet.
  • Once quinoa is cooked, place it in a large bowl and add garlic, oregano, salt, chickpeas, and tomatoes to the bowl; stir to combine.
  • Spoon quinoa mixture into the red peppers until they're full, then bake the peppers for 20-25 minutes, or until peppers are soft.
  • Top peppers with feta cheese then drizzle with harissa paste.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

-To make harissa drizzle-able, add it to a bowl along with 2 tbsp of water to thin it out
-To prep ahead: simply make the quinoa mixture and store it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days; then, when you're ready to eat, you just have to slice, stuff and bake the peppers
