In need of an epic weeknight dinner that’s both delicious and healthy? Then you’ve come to the right place. If you’ve ever had a bell pepper egg-in-a-hole, that’s basically the name of the game here. Although these Stuffed Enjoya Peppers look like they belong in the breakfast category, they’re actually perfect for anytime of the day. No matter when you serve them, these meaty, low-carb morsels look and taste just like party time.
The best thing about stuffed peppers is you can fill them with anything you like. From different meats to grains to cheeses, the sky is the limit. These Stuffed Enjoya Peppers combine delicious Italian ground sausage, mushrooms and Melissa’s Cooked Quinoa. Our version is already conveniently pre-cooked and ready to use for any occasion. Protein and fiber-rich quinoa adds a delightfully nutty flavor and chewy texture to this dish. However, the fun doesn’t quite stop there. Each stuffed pepper comes with its own egg on top, which bakes in the oven sunny side up-style. Finish it off with your favorite marinara sauce and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
The first thing you’ll notice about Enjoya Peppers are their gorgeous, vibrant coloring. Rosy red flames splashed over a canary yellow background, this beautiful variety resemble a Gala apple more than a bell pepper! As much as they look like a work of art, they are so much more than just their appearance. This pepper is heavier and denser than other peppers with thick walls and a distinct crunchy texture. Enjoyas also have a pleasant sweetness to them. You’ll can best showcase their beauty by roasting them whole. In addition, you can cut them into long strips and serve with a vegetable platter and dip.
Enjoya peppers make the perfect vessel for this healthy, protein-packed recipe. A delightful take on basic stuffed peppers, this recipe is the kind of comfort food that you’ll want to make throughout the year.
