Ruby Red Stuffed Protein Peppers

Happy Meatless Monday!
Do your body a healthy favour and have a plant based, protein packed dinner tonight!
I am in love with these beautiful vegan stuffed red peppers!
Tons of vitamins and antioxidants from all the colorful veggies mixed with huge amounts of super healthy protein, fibre and iron from the beans and quinoa.
Make them tonight! Make them tomorrow! Freeze some and have them anytime!
