I have been stuffing veggies for quite a few years now...as funny as that sounds. I love the idea of the vegetable being the vessel that delivers more flavour on the inside whilst being the edible container as well.
Check out Fruity Quinoa Stuffed Peppers or Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Pumpkin for example and we have loads more in other books and projects that some of you may already love. This recipe is not super quick to make with most of the time taken being hands off, but if you are following Shelf Control you will find that it is quicker than you thought to have this fragrant dinner on the table middle of the week. Bon appetit!
