    ElleFirebrand's Note:

    This a Greek take on the classic beef stuffed pepper. Lemon, cinnamon, fennel and oregano spice up traditional ground beef and onions, while healthy quinoa adds extra fiber. There seem to be a lot of steps, but this one goes together in about 20 minutes. It works great if you have pre-browned ground beef in your freezer.
