Happy Meatless Monday!  How was your weekend?  We had so much rain here in Austin— all the rain this weekend gave me a perfect excuse to relax.   Some areas got 6 to 11 inches overnight!

On Saturday night, some of us went to see Eric Church and it was absolutely pouring.  We were outside, and I swear, everyone looked like they jumped in a pool.  It actually made the concert really fun.  Nothing like dancing and singing along to Eric Church in the pouring rain.

Anyway, I’ve made quinoa stuffed peppers again, but made this quinoa with a touch of Fall flavors.

I threw in some roasted pepitas, roasted sweet potatoes and topped them with goat cheese.

I also added a touch of balsamic vinegar and arugula and it was fantastic.  I was so pleased with how pretty these peppers were too :)

    […] are perfect for stuffing! I’ll use a sweet potato from last week’s box and make these Quinoa Stuffed Peppers. Instead of arugula, feel free to use the Asian greens, and definitely mix in some chopped parsley […]
