Ingredients
  • 1 Bell pepper
  • Handful of Raisins
  • Quinoa
  • Sliced King Oyster mushrooms (or any other kind you like, like chanterelle)
  • Collard greens (or kale)
  • Crushed almonds
  • Olive oil
  • truffle oil (optional, I use oil of real truffles and not truffle flavored oil)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 slices of cheese (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cook the quinoa as recipe indicates on the label. (usually 10 minutes on medium heat until the quinoa becomes clear and you can see the seed softened)
  2. Drain quinoa & mix with raisins and put aside
  3. Slice the bell pepper in half and clean inside and remove seeds.
  4. Fill bell pepper with quinoa mix
  5. In a pan stir fry the King Oyster mushrooms with olive oil until soft.
  6. Drizzle a bit of truffle oil on them at the end.
  7. Take mushrooms out and put aside
  8. In a pan stir fry the collard greens in a bit of oil and mix with crushed almonds.
  9. In a casserole place mushrooms & collard greens on bottom.
  10. Place the stuffed bell peppers on top
  11. For a nice topping add a slice of cheese.
  12. Put in oven on 350F until the pepper has become soft and cheese melted (for about 30-40 minutes.)
  13. Enjoy!
Notes
If you want to make it totally vegan, you can use vegan cheese, or no cheese and just add a mix of olive oil and breadcrumbs on top of bell peppers so it gets a goldenbrown crust in oven.
