"This is a very healthy, vegetarian main course with lots of protein from the chickpeas and quinoa. The flavors in this recipe are a blend of Persian and Mediterranean. Very easy to make and super satisfying! This freezes really well for a dinner or lunch later on (goat cheese and all!)"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Mix garbanzo beans, stewed tomatoes, walnuts, raisins, white parts of green onions, lemon juice, chili powder, garlic powder, mint, and cinnamon together in a bowl; stir in cooked quinoa.
  4. Arrange red bell pepper halves, hollow-side facing upwards, in the prepared baking sheet. Spoon quinoa mixture into each red bell pepper half.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bell peppers are tender, about 30 minutes. Spoon a few teaspoons of drippings from the bottom of the baking dish over each stuffed pepper; top each with 1 tablespoon goat cheese and green parts of green onions.

Made this almost to the recipe. Didn't have goat cheese so I used feta, and I omitted the raisins. (We really only like them is sweet items or breads...not dishes like this.) First, there was ...

The recipe said 2 peppers but the shopping list said 3. Three was perfect and the flavours were fantastic. I will make this again when company is coming for dinner.
