Moroccan Style Stuffed Pepeprs frugalanticsrecipes.comNow, let me tell you about these Moroccan Style Stuffed Peppers.  I do realize that quinoa isn’t Moroccan.  With the raisins, peanuts and spices, however, the flavor of these beauties took my imagination to North Africa.  I made up my own spice blend and actually wrote down what I put into it, too!  That’s a big first.  Usually, I am tossing ingredients into a bowl pel-mell and wishing afterward that I’d thought to have a paper and pen nearby.

I also happened to have some leftover kale chips that had lost their crunch, so I added them into the mix.  I would suggest a substitution of fresh or frozen spinach.  The other vegetables in the peppers are carrots, celery and onions.  With no meat, you could serve these as a side or you could opt to serve them as a delicious, meatless main dish.

  1. My partner doesn’t like stuffed peppers, but I could see using this recipe to stuff pork chops or a pork loin roast or chicken breasts. I like the mix of ingredients!
