  1. I absolutely love mushrooms. I haven’t ever tried Quinoa yet! I think it is time that I do!

    • Kristen, I have to admit that if I am having quinoa I always cook it in broth (except for breakfast dishes) or I do not love it that much – cooking it in broth makes all the difference!
      Thanks for leaving a comment, I appreciate it.

    stuffed peppers are my favourite !! I am not much of a quinoa fan (not from a lack of trying) .. but I am going to try it in the broth and see how that works out .. going to try these peppers .. I have 4 frozen in my freezer right now !

  3. I have never tried Quino but with mushrooms and peppers how can it go wrong? Will be giving this one a try.

  4. I am excited to try this because I just bought a box of quinoa and had no idea what to do with it.This sounds really delicious with the broth and other ingredients.

  5. YUM! These look and sound great. Definitely adding to my “Meatless Monday” recipe file!
