  1. Whip Up Some Halloween Stuffed Peppers

 Sure you’ve carved pumpkins before, but we bet you haven’t carved peppers – until now, that is. These nutritious gems are stuffed with zucchini, halloumi cheese and quinoa and “carved” to look like Jack-o-lanterns.

These stuffed peppers are much less time consuming than pumpkin carving and a whole lot more delicious!
