Creamy Mushroom and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers



6 yellow peppers
1 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 small white onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped finely
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
2 tablespoons cream cheese
Sea salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F

In a deep-sided skillet, add olive oil on medium to high heat. Saute onions and mushrooms until soft (about 7 minutes). Add lemon juice, fresh herbs and cream cream. Mix well to combine. Season with sea salt and black pepper.

Cut off stems and remove seeds from inside peppers. Stuff the peppers half full with cooked quinoa. Fill to the top with mushrooms. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the top. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes.

Garnish with fresh herbs and sliced tomatoes to serve.
