This was really good. I chopped up the bell pepppers and sauteed with the other veggies (instead of stuffing them). I also used pine nuts (and put in more, maybe 2 T) and I used red pepper flakes instead of cayenne. I also added some minced garlic (2 cloves). I added the spaghetti sauce, no cheese. I did have to add some extra water while my quinoa was cooking, just a little over a T. Wonderful, flavorful dish.

I loved the different ingredients that went into these vegetarian stuffed peppers. To add a little more protein we added a little TVP to the filling. The amount of seasonings was great. I did use a bit more spaghetti sauce and mixed it into the filling rather than just on top. Thanks for posting this recipe!

These were fabulous! I am not a vegetarian, but I give up meat one month per year. My husband asked me to use fewer meat substitutes so I was pleased to come across this dish. I originally intended to use the spaghetti sauce and cheese but after preparing the filling, I decided they did not need it. I was right! My only changes to the recipe were to substitue pine nuts for sunflower seeds, and to add 1 tsp. of minced garlic. These are so good, I will add them to my repetoire during the year - even non-meatless months!

I absolutely adored this! my family was afraid to try it, but they ended up loving it as much as i did. It has a delicious ethnic flavor and let's me be vegan, without missing my father's traditional stuffed peppers! thank you so, so much!

I've made these once before and they were amazing. Like Sharon and LUv 2 BaKE, we changed it up a little. I use Zatarain's yellow rice instead of quiona. We also use Bocca crumbles and salsa in them. I suppose you could use whatever you like best. Thanks for putting your version on here though!

Delicious! I really enjoyed this recipe. I used quinoa mixed with millet and opted to use the spaghetti sauce and parmesan. Thanks so much for a yummy vegetarian meal! Made for Please Review My Recipe game.

Yum. Made with pine nuts as other suggested. Topped with a 4-cheese Italian cheese blend and it was delicious. I might add in veggie ground round next time. I agree it is versatile - you could add loads of veggies in. I don't like carrots but didn't notice them in this (good way to get ME to eat my carrots!). My 18 month old daughter even enjoyed the filling, and my husband says this recipe's a keeper. Thanks!

This is a great recipe. I didn't have any marjorum, but the flavor was still fantastic! Can't wait to have more tomorrow!!! :)

Holy Moly! These peppers rocked! I'm always trying to find new ways of cooking quinoa and this recipe will be made regularly now. My bf, who does not like quinoa AT ALL, LOVED THEM! I did not use the sunflower seeds, I cooked the quinoa in chicken broth (I had some that needed to be used, I will try veg broth next time), used all red peppers, and topped the peppers with a marinara sauce. Man these things are GOOOOD :)
