Recipe by Katherine
"This is a very healthy, vegetarian main course with lots of protein from the chickpeas and quinoa. The flavors in this recipe are a blend of Persian and Mediterranean. Very easy to make and super satisfying! This freezes really well for a dinner or lunch later on (goat cheese and all!)"

olive oil, or as needed
1 1/3 cups
1 (16 ounce) can
garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
1 (16 ounce) can
stewed tomatoes (such as Del Monte® Stewed Tomatoes with Onions, Celery, and Green Peppers)
green onions, sliced, white parts and tops separated
dried mint leaves
red bell peppers, halved lengthwise, seeds and membrane removed
crumbled goat cheese
Used shelled pistachios, chopped up... with some fine ground walnuts (1 tsp), black beans instead of chick peas. Used a few blueberries, in place of raisin. Cooked the quinoa, in vegetable broth instead of water (as always). Slice of provolone cheese on top of the pepper half. (last 10 minutes of oven time). Tasted very good.
Made this almost to the recipe. Didn't have goat cheese so I used feta, and I omitted the raisins. (We really only like them is sweet items or breads...not dishes like this.) First, there was way too much filling for the peppers. I ended up cutting a third pepper, and there was still a bit of filling left. My daughter, who loves feta, didn't like it with this. I thought the taste was fine, as feta and goat cheese have a slightly similar taste in the first place. But cheese choice aside, overall, this really did nothing for me. Although I love quinoa, and stuffed peppers, I will only finish these leftovers...the recipe will not be made again.
I made this dish according to the recipe except for leaving out the walnuts and raisins and I loved it! The combination of seasonings and flavors was delicious, the goat cheese was just the right topping and I found it very filling. I used two small bell peppers so had some of the filling left over. I put it over hummus and it was great that way as well. I will definitely make this dish again.
Absolutely delicious! I also used cranberries instead of raisins and it turned out wonderful! It's flavourful and really easy to make. This is going to be a regular meal for us.
I tried this recipe using dried cranberries instead of raisins. Absolutely wonderful!
This is a very good recipe. The proportions are correct and it has a good flavor. I liked it because it is a little different from what you usually see with green peppers. I don't know why people feel the need to rate recipes and then explain that they changed all the ingredients.
I made this dish exactly as stated except for substituting onion powder for the greens onions because I just didn't have them. I was skeptical of the raisins and cinnamon in this but they were an amazing addition and I don't think it would be the same without it!! The goat cheese was perfect and I would not substitute feta as its rather salty and there was no added salt to this dish (which I questioned also but it turned out to be the right choice). Very unique and delicious combination of flavors and quite filling! As another reviewer mentioned, it made a LOT of filling and I cut more peppers to fill. I will definitely make this again, especially when my vegetarian daughter and stepdaughter are staying with us. They loved it!
The recipe said 2 peppers but the shopping list said 3. Three was perfect and the flavours were fantastic. I will make this again when company is coming for dinner.
