  • Get the veggie mixture off the heat, add the cooked quinoa to it. Squeeze the lemon over the quinoa and stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper accordingly.
  • Spoon the mixture into pre-cooked peppers and top with a sprinkle of extra cheese on the top. Place the cut tops of the peppers back on, and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes.
