  • 1 cup cooked Quinoa
  • 1 pound Ground beef
  • 3 cups Tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup, toasted Pine nuts
  • 3 Tbsp chopped Basil
  • 2 tsp Dry oregano
Preparation
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F
  2. In a large baking dish place 1.5 cups of tomato sauce and set aside.
  3. In a large non-stick pan on medium high heat, heat the olive oil.
  4. Add the ground beef to the pan, and break apart while browning the meat.
  5. Once there is no more pink, add in the tomato sauce and cook until all mixed through.
  6. Add in the quinoa, pine nuts, and dry oregano. Stir together and remove from heat.
  7. Add in the fresh basil.
  8. Remove and save the tops of each pepper, then discard the core and seeds.
  9. Fill the peppers with the quinoa beef mixture and top each one with 1/4 cup of grated Black Diamond Gouda cheese.
  10. Place the peppers in the baking dish with their tops nestled gently next to them.
  11. Cover the baking dish with tin foil, and bake in the oven for 60 minutes.
  12. Remove the tin foil and cook the peppers for another 20 minutes to allow the cheese to brown.
  13. Serve the peppers with some remaining sauce and the top of the pepper.

Finger Food

If cheese and crackers had a personality, they’d definitely be people pleasers! When arranging your cheese and cracker tray, make sure to pair neutral crackers with stronger cheeses so as to appreciate their distinct flavour, and herbed crackers with mild cheeses so as to complement their subtle taste.

Melted Gouda Goodness

Gouda melts well so it’s the perfect addition to a grilled sandwich and it can hold its own as a fancy fondue served with potatoes and rye bread, or dried fruit and chocolate for dessert! You can even add it to your favorite soup to liven up the flavor!
