My Grandson has Autism. His mom decided to change his diet. She cut out all the sugar and starches and started cooking foods that were healthy. She put him on a gluten free diet, fresh fruits and veggies. Quinoa was also a favorite of his, so when he would visit I wanted to find new ways to prepare his meals, since it was so restricted. The Quinoa stuffed pepper was one of the first recipes I cooked for him and he loved it. You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this healthy version of the original stuffed pepper. This is such a hearty meal you won't even notice that it's meatless.
