Super-Easy Halloween Recipe: Scary Stuffed Bell Peppers

4 bell peppers
1/2 cup quinoa
1 can black beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes
Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Preheat the oven to 150˚C.
  • Hollow out the bell peppers by cutting off the tops and removing the seeds, then rinse. For a festive jack-o’-lantern look, cut out triangles as eyes and a mouth with teeth.
  • Cook the quinoa according to the package instructions.
  • Place the bell peppers on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes to soften.
  • Place the cooked quinoa in a large pot over low heat. Add the black beans and diced tomatoes, then season with salt and pepper. Continue to heat, stirring occasionally, until any liquid has evaporated.
  • Spoon the mixture into the hollowed-out bell peppers, filling to the top.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the bell peppers are soft but the filling isn’t too dry.
