 Here's a twist to an old family stand-by that my mother made
 frequently when I was a kid. 
   serves 4
 4 Large Bell Peppers
 1 cup Quinoa
 1 cup Buckwheat Groats
 5 cups Vegetable Broth
 6-8 Sundried Roma Tomatoes
 1 med. Onion
 3-4 Garlic Cloves
 Rosemary, Basil, Oregano to taste
 1 cup Tomato Puree
 1 egg white or egg substitute (we use Ener-g)
  Rinse Quinoa well and set aside to drain.  
  Chop onion, garlic, and sundried tomatoes and set aside
  Cut tops off of bell peppers, rinse the bodies clear of seeds.  Trim
 the seed pod off the tops and save the tops.
 Heat 2 cups of broth to a boil in a medium sized sauce pan.  Once
 broth has reached a boil dump in the Quinoa and sundried tomatoes.
 Cover and bring flame down to simmer for 12 minutes.
 Add 1 cup of buckwheat groats to 1 egg white (or egg substitute) and
 mix until groats are coated.  Turn mixture into a dry frying pan and
 cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes stirring well to keep groats
 separated.  After 2-3 minutes add a cup and a half of broth, onion,
 garlic and other spices [ari: you might want to mix the spices into
 the tomato sauce - in the next step - instead].  Cover and bring flame
 down to a simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
 Take Quinoa from stove and drain, saving vegetable stock (you'll need
 it in a minute) Place Quinoa in a bowl and add the buckwheat groats
 once they have finished.  Add 1 cup of tomato puree your favorite
 tomato sauce and mix well.  Once mixed, spoon liberally into bell
 peppers and put pepper tops back on.
 Take left over broth and put into large pot with steamer tray.  Add
 broth or water until water just touches bottom of steamer rack [ari:
 actually 1/4 - 1/2 inch (.5 - 3cm) is enough] and place Peppers into
 pot.  Secure lid and place on stove.  Bring to a boil then let simmer
 for 20-30 minutes, until peppers are very soft.  Serve.
 [ari: this dish tastes even better the next day!]
