Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

I love this easy recipe. 

I have made it several times for lunches at work. 

This is also a very versatile recipe.

It can be a simple meal or a complex palate teaser. 

Use your imagination. 

but here's what I did: 


1 large bell pepper (or 2 small),
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1-2 olives, diced
1-2 diced cherry tomatoes 
3 tbs shredded cheese
OPTIONAL: 1 tsp sriracha (I love the spice!)
OPTIONAL: 2 tsp plain greek  yogurt (great sour cream substitute!)


Cut bell pepper in half and rid of seeds and ribs (the white part lining the wall)
Scoop and fill bell pepper halves with quinoa
Top with diced olives, cherry tomatoes and cheese. 

Option 1) Microwave for 30-45 sec until warmed and cheese is melted.

Option 2) Heat oven 350 degrees and bake for 10-15 min. (This option cooks the bell pepper more if you don't like it raw--i like the crunch in the raw)


Have any other suggestions or add-ins that you've done?
