Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Red Peppers with Quinoa, Provolone and Walnuts

4 red peppers
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground coriander
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup parsley, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup (4 oz) provolone cheese, coarsely grated

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Red Peppers with Quinoa, Provolone and Walnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 450, with rack in upper third. Slice a very thin layer from the base of a pepper so it sits upright. Slice off top, just below stem, and remove ribs and seeds from tom and bottom. Repeat with remaining peppers. Discard stems; chop tops and set aside.

  2. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium. Add onion, garlic, coriander and chopped tops; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until onion has softened, 4-5 minutes.

  3. Add quinoa, and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add 1 cup water and bring to boil. Reduce to summer, cover and cook until water has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, 11-13 minutes. Remove fromt heat and stir in parsley, walnuts and 3/4 cup provolone; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Dividing evenly, stuff peppers with quinoa mixture; place in a 2-quart baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until peppers are tender, about 1 hour. Uncover and top with remaining 1/4 cup provolone; bake until cheese melts, 10-15 minutes.
