  • (1 lb.) ground veal
  • 125 ml (½ cup) uncooked quinoa
  • 250 ml 1 cup of water or as needed
  • 6 Bell peppers

  2. Cut off pepper top and remove insides to create a cup. Arrange in a large deep pot with the hollowed sides facing upward.
  3. Spoon an equal amount of the veal mixture into each hollowed pepper, leaving a ½ inch free space from the top of the bell pepper.
  4. Mix the water and tomato sauce in a separate bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and pour over the stuffed peppers, making sure the sauce completely covers them. You may add more as needed in order to cover peppers.
  5. Cook on high heat and bring liquid to a boil. Cover and reduce heat, simmer gently for 1 hour or until peppers are tender and veal is cooked.
