Stuffed Bell Peppers (Gluten free and Dairy free)

I found a recipe to stuff bell peppers with Quinoa, ground beef, spinach and mushrooms a couple of years back. Today I made it to fit my new eating clean habit. Everybody loved it. I made peppers for the family with Quinoa and I left it out for myself, as I don’t eat complex carbs after 3pm.
Also finding a Vegan “Cheese” that would work was hard, but Go Veggie Brand Mozzarella Shreds seem to work and taste pretty g

This makes about 6 stuffed peppers

Ingridients:
6 bell peppers
1lb. ground tukey (I used 93/7)
3-4 Cups of Spinach
8 white mushrooms
1/4 cup and some to top Go Veggie! Mozzarella Shred
half an onion
1 cup cooked Quinoa
Salt and Pepper,
Oregano and Basil
1 tbsp Olive Oil

Preheat oven to F350
Chop the onion and sautee in Olive oil, then add the mushrooms, let them cook for a minute or two, then add the spinach, once the spinach is a wilted, put that aside. Brown the ground turkey until no more pink, season with Salt, Pepper, Oregano and Basil. Then put the Turkey into the veggie mixture and add the Quinoa and Go Veggie. Mix. (for me, I mixed everything, but the Quinoa and stuffed my pepper, after I took my portion out I added the Quinoa)
Cut the Tops off the Bell Peppers and take all the seeds out then fill with the mixture. Sprinkle with a little bit of Go Veggie. Set the peppers into a baking dish and bake for 35mins.
