    Cook Mushrooms and Garlic:

      • Add the minced garlic and finely chopped mushrooms to the skillet with the sautéed onion.
      • Sauté the mixture until the mushrooms release their moisture and start to brown, and most of the liquid has evaporated. This will take around 5-7 minutes.

    Add Quinoa or Rice and Seasonings:

      • Stir in the cooked quinoa or rice, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper into the mushroom mixture.
      • Mix well, ensuring that all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

    Prepare the Bell Peppers:

      • Halve the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes.

    Stuff the Bell Peppers:

      • Place the halved bell peppers in a baking dish.
      • Stuff each pepper half with the mushroom and quinoa mixture, pressing it down gently to pack the filling.

    Optional Cheese Topping:

      • If desired, sprinkle grated cheese over the stuffed peppers. This adds a delicious cheesy layer to your dish.

    Bake the Stuffed Peppers:

      • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil, ensuring it's tightly sealed.
      • Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the bell peppers become tender and slightly wrinkled.

    Melt the Cheese and Brown the Top (Optional):

      • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese and lightly brown the top of the stuffed peppers.

    Garnish and Serve:

      • Once the stuffed bell peppers are cooked to perfection, remove them from the oven.
      • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or cilantro for a burst of color and flavor.


        • Serve your Mushroom and Herb Stuffed Bell Peppers while they are still hot. These make a wholesome and satisfying meal or side dish.

      These stuffed bell peppers are both nutritious and delicious, making them a great addition to your dinner table. Enjoy!
