Stuffed Red Peppers

I found the most wonderful bright red peppers.  I had to do something that was going to maintain the integrity of the vegetable. My idea was to stuff it!

I took 1/2 of and onion and  sauteed it.  I added 1 Lb. of ground sirloin.  I  brown this well.  I add some homemade tomato sauce and check for seasoning.  I chopped some fresh parsley and mixed it all together.  I added about 1/2 of a cup of cooked Quinoa to give it some texture.  I stuffed the peppers and placed them in an oven proof dish.  Add some hot chicken stock a quarter of the way up the peppers.  Place in a 350 degree oven for about 20 mins.

This was a perfect supper for a sunset picnic.
