Ella from Pure Ella stops by today to share her recipe for Quinoa Black Bean Roasted Bell Peppers.
I have one more guest stopping by today sharing a quick and delicious plant-based recipe that’s chock full of bold colors and flavors, which is exactly the kind of simple and elegant recipe you’ll find over at Ella’s beautiful blog Pure Ella.
Hello everyone! I am so happy to be here at Gourmande in the Kitchen! Sylvie’s blog has been a huge source of inspiration for me for a long time and I am thrilled to be here as a guest. Thank you so much Sylvie for having me!!
Healthy meals with pure natural ingredients are my kind of food. I love dishes that are simple and delicious but are also nurturing to the body and soul. These Quinoa Black Bean Roasted Bell Peppers are made with good-for-you ingredients like quinoa, kale, beans and beautiful vibrant bell peppers ~ all healthy ingredients combined to make a great meal.
My approach to food is that it should be healing to the body but not sacrifice on taste. After all, I have reversed a rare illness with food by simply learning to listen to my body. Eventually I arrived at a ‘pure diet’ that’s mainly gluten-free and plant-based. Realizing that I can still create delicious exciting meals was something I learned overtime when I finally stopped feeling like I’m giving something up. Now, food is not only my medicine, but it’s also an exciting part of mealtime that I look forward to the most.
I love cooking from scratch and eating well – but I also prefer to cut corners whenever I can. This quinoa black bean stuffing is a delicious one pot dish that can be served on its own instead of rice or potatoes. And it gets done at the same time the peppers finish roasting in the oven. A really quick dinner that looks and tastes great! And it’s filled with healthy whole food ingredients as well as protein and plant-power goodness!
When a meal looks vibrant and pretty it tastes so much better too. I hope you agree and will enjoy these baked Quinoa Black Bean Roasted Bell Peppers very soon!
