First, cook your Quinoa as directed on your package. Next preheat your oven to 375.

While your Quinoa is cooking and Peppers are roasting sauté yours onions until they become translucent. Add your minced garlic and stir for a minute. Then add your diced mushrooms. Stir and cook until the mushrooms become tender.
By now your Quinoa is done. Set it aside. Your peppers are done. Pull them out of the oven and set aside to cool a bit. Keep the oven on 375. You will use it again
