Cheesy Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

When I thought about pepper recipes, I immediately recalled one of the most popular recipes on WJWE: Cheesy Pumpkin Quinoa Stuffed PeppersThey are perfect for fall, a little spicy and super filling. Readers have been asking for a vegan, gluten-free version since I made the original. Well, ask and you shall receive! Bam! I used nutritional yeast, almond milk and almond flour and dare I say this is even tastier than the original? I dare! I even used kale instead of the original spinach to up to tastiness and healthiness factor. You’re welcome!

Heat up two tablespoons grapeseed oil over medium heat. Sauté onions over medium heat until they start to brown, about 5 minutes) and then add in garlic and sauté for one more minute. Add in almond flour to make a roux, and then add in almond milk, nutritional yeast, and Dijon mustard. Stir over medium heat until the sauce is thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. If it seems too thick, add a little more almond milk. Then add in seasonings and stir, and mix in pumpkin, kale and quinoa and stir until kale wilts.

Cheesy Quinoa Stuffed PeppersFill the four peppers with the mixture and bake for 45-60 minutes until peppers are soft and filling is hot.

  1. awesome giveaway and yummy peppers

  2. So I love this recipe, but even more, I love the name of your blog! :)

  3. My kids love pumpkin this looks like another way to incorporate into their diet other than as a dessert. I will be making these for dinner on Sunday night for sure. I just might add some turkey sausage (?) or another protein for my husband.

  4. Looks like a good recipe. I’ve seen quite a few recipes using nutritional yeast, but have never tried using it.

  5. I love every single ingredient in this recipe. I definitely have to try this out!

  6. These look amazing! I love all the colors. Thanks for sharing with the #PepperParty! I shared a bell pepper cocktail. Cheers.

  7. My favorite ingredients in a stuffed bell pepper: Ground turkey, onions, yellow squash, corn, small pieces of broccoli, and small pieces of asparagus!! Can you say yum?!

  8. I like my peppers stuffed with hamburger, rice and tomatoes.

  9. Maria Greve says:

    I love all of them, so hard to choose just one… but if I had to my favorite is any and all kinds of stuffed peppers! ok, still not ONE recipe. There’s so many ways to use bell peppers, how can I choose just one?

  10. Oh my gosh Amy, these are so pretty. I love that you stuffed them with quinoa, the pumpkin is brilliant.

  11. Amy, a fantastic creative recipe again. Pumpkin is full of vitamin A as you probably know. Is the cheesy from yeast?? I have never heard of nutritional yeast. So it is different than bread yeast??? Oy.
    I’ve got to try this.

  12. I love stuffed bell peppers with crumbled sausage, shredded potatoes, onions, and lots of mozzarella.

  13. Tracey Lynn says:

    I love roasted bell peppers!

  14. Love this recipe! My husband is Turkish and he makes stuffed peppers as well, but your version looks great too! Pinning!

  15. juanitascocina says:

    You had me at quinoa! LOVE these!

  16. My fav recipe is roasted red pepper omelets!

  17. Im looking at all these pepper recipes… and IM starting to get really hungry! lol

  18. I am allergic to almonds, do you know what would be a good substitute for almond flour?
