Vegan Indian Stuffed Peppers

Like the musician that I am, I put my improvising skills to the test last week in the kitchen when I decided to make stuffed peppers based off of Cooking Channel host, Bal Arneson’s stuffed pepper recipe (http://m.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/stuffed-peppers.html)
Instead of following her recipe to the T, I worked with what I had, subbed out some spices, and the brown rice for quinoa, and it came out incredibly!

Here it is:

Yield: 4 servings
2 cups roughly chopped mushrooms sautéed
4 med Yukon gold potatoes boiled then mashed
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup spinach chopped
2 tbsp grated ginger
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp cardamom powder
Pinch red chili flakes
1 tsp salt
4 bell peppers bottoms leveled off, tops cut off and seeds scooped out

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In the same pot that you mashed the potatoes in, stir in all the filling ingredients, and stuff the peppers to the brim. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 mins, until skin is wrinkly and tops golden.

You can improvise too!:

Try using any kind of rice, barley, or grain to stuff your peppers
Experiment with different spices
Add fresh herbs!
