They're as colorful as they are nutritious! Stuff these bell peppers with ground venison and quinoa, then sauce with a garlicky marinara

Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 4 large bell peppers (any color; we use green, red, orange and yellow for presentation)
  • 1.25 pounds ground venison
  • 1 box of quinoa with brown rice (we recommend Near East)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups marinara sauce


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove tops off of peppers and scoop out inside seeds. Discard (or compost for chickens!).

2. Set in a baking dish. In a sauté pan over medium high heat, add olive oil and lightly brown ground venison. Chop garlic and add to pan.

3. Prepare quinoa and brown rice according to package. Combine browned ground venison, quinoa and brown rice and garlic mixture.

4. Add marinara sauce and stir. Scoop mixture into each pepper. Top with panko breadcrumbs and drizzle with olive oil.

5. Bake for 20 minutes or until peppers are soft.

Serve and enjoy!
