Home Cookin': Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

There's no rhyme or reason to what my children enjoy eating and what they flat out reject. The perennial kid favorite, grilled cheese, grosses out my almost-7-year-old, Mira, but she devours apple slices like they're candy. Blueberries — the most innocuous berry out there in my opinion — send my 4-year-old, Theo, running for the hills, but he's a fan of eggplant parmigiana and pickles. 

My husband, Jeff, and I have been on a healthy food kick recently, trying to cut out sugar and complex carbs Monday through Friday. One night last week, I decided to make quinoa-stuffed peppers for us all. I was pretty sure my kids would hate them.

But wouldn't you know, they gobbled them up with glee. Mira declared she'd like them every night. Theo was especially tickled by the edible pepper bowls.
