Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

I just love making slow cooker recipes.  This new slow cooker recipe I have for you today is Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers.  I already have one stuffed pepper recipe on my blog, but I wanted to do this one in the slow cooker.  I used quinoa for the stuffing, but you could also use rice if you prefer.  Hard to make these stuffed peppers look good in a photo, but I promise you they are delicious!

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers - My Whole Food Life

I made the quinoa separately before adding it to the slow cooker.  This recipe is very easy and makes a lot, so you will have easy dinners all week long.  I used my dairy free cheese sauce in this recipe.  I also think my pizza cheese sauce would be good in this recipe.   I hope you enjoy this stuffed pepper recipe as much as we did!
