Cooking with Grams – Quinoa Stuffed Peppers


As we are following seasonal vegetables, the type of dishes and recipes we make keep expanding. This time we tried something out of the ordinary.

This is not a typical Azerbaijani dish what so ever, in fact, I found this idea online.

Giving yourself the freedom to try new things and enjoying the results (even if they are not perfect), is an essential part of living a life that is curious and fun!

In the process we get sparks of new ideas, expediting the wins. For me that idea was:  “Why not ask the readers to share their favorite recipes?”, so that’s what we’ll do.

If you have any delicious seasonal dishes, tell us about them and share their recipe.

Enjoy this dish and tell us what you thought.
Maybe you have ideas for improvements?

Good eating!
