These flavorful stuffed peppers are easy to make and are a great way to incorporate seasonal vegetables into your meal. The seasonal brussels sprouts and butternut squash- along with all the other vegetables, are packed with phytonutrients that can help to boost your immune system and give you energy.
Seasonal brussels sprouts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family that also includes broccoli and cauliflower. Brussels sprouts are a great source of vitamins A, C, K, and folic acid- a heart-healthy B vitamin. Vitamin A is great for your eyes, vitamin C is good for your immune system, and vitamin K plays an important role in blood clotting.
Try these delicious, fiber and protein filled peppers for an easy and delicious meal! You can also add other vegetables and switch the quinoa for brown rice to mix it up.
