Allergen Information:

Free from Gluten, Soy, Sesame, Nut


Ingredients:

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 1/2 cup butter or ghee, organic, grass-fed

  • 1 pound ground lamb or beef, grass-fed

  • 2 cups tri-colored quinoa, cooked

  • 1 small can black beans, drained, rinsed

  • 1 egg

  • 6-8 medium size bell peppers, green, yellow or red

  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp ground pepper or 1 drop Young Living Black Pepper EO

  • 2 - 32 Oz Boxes Creamy Tomato Soup, organic

Directions:

  1. Sauté onion in butter or ghee in pan, stirring frequently, until translucent. Set aside to cool slightly.

  2. While the onion is cooking, wash, clean and cut your peppers. Cut the tops off and scrape out the seeds inside of the pepper and discard. Set the clean peppers aside.

  3. Next, in a large bowl, assemble your raw ground meat, cooked quinoa, egg, spices, garlic, Worcestershire Sauce and cooled cooked onion. Mix well with large spatula or hands. Gently fold the black beans into the meat mixture.

  4. Stuff the peppers with the meat mixture, standing them up in a deep pot or Dutch oven.

  5. Pour the tomato soup directly over the peppers until the liquid almost covers them.

  6. Cook on the stove top, on low, for 35-45 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and can be cut with a knife.

  7. Serve in a bowl and pour sauce overtop. Enjoy!

Notes:

  1. To clean my bell peppers (which are currently on the top of the EWG's Dirty Dozen List) I use Young Living's Fruit & Veggie Spray, infused with Thieves oil, which safely and effectively cleans produce. This 2 Oz bottle is great to travel with, take to work or on the go with the kids! If you'd like more information on Young Living hop on over to my Essential Oils page.

  2. I use "Pacific" brand Organic Creamy Tomato Soup in the box for this recipe. I have also used "Pacific" Organic Tomato & Red Pepper Soup and it is great! As always, using organic foods/brands in recipes is personal preference, so choose a brand that fits your lifestyle.

  3. Tri-colored quinoa adds a fun twist to this recipe! From a nutritional standpoint, black quinoa is slightly higher in fiber than it's counterparts, and contains anthocyanins, which give it its black color. Anthocyanins play important roles in the body and research indicates that they may reduce the risk of cardiovascular and cognitive diseases, and even some types of cancer. Red quinoa is rich in B Vitamins like Folate, which is needed for the production of new cells.
