Steps

Step 1

To begin with, preheat your oven to 375°F, or 190°C. Next, cut the bell peppers' tops off with a knife. Remove the seeds and membranes. Then in a large bowl, you will combine the cooked quinoa, the chickpeas, the diced tomatoes, the cucumber, the red onion, the parsley, the mint, the lemon juice, and the olive oil. Make sure to mix well.

Step 2

Then you will season the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Then stuff each bell pepper with the quinoa and chickpea mixture, pressing it down gently. Then place the stuffed bell peppers in a baking dish.

Step 3

Make sure to cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the bell peppers are tender. Then remove the foil and bake for an extra 5-10 minutes to lightly brown the tops. Before serving, take them out of the oven and allow them to cool a bit.
