Quinoa grain has been called a super food , it’s very high in protein. Cooked quinoa can be combined into your salad, side dish etc. After I made  Jalapeño red quinoa bites , I start to creating recipe with quinoa. This time I’ll post red quinoa stuffed yellow bell peppers recipe. If you don’t have red quinoa, you can use the white one. You don’t have to use the yellow bell peppers like I did, red or green bell pepper also perfect :-).
