Recipe tips
  • You could use couscous or bulgar wheat for the stuffing, instead of the quinoa.
  • Try using different spices, such as curry paste, or fresh herbs, such as coriander or tarragon.
  • Top with a little low-fat cheese if desired.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. Defrost in the fridge or microwave and reheat in the oven or microwave until piping hot.
