1 C quinoa washed and drained at least 3 times.
1 Red bell pepper
1 Yellow bell pepper
1 Anaheim pepper
1 Shallot minced
1 Bay leaf
1 Clove garlic minced
1 Sprig fresh thyme
1 1/2 C vegetable stock
1/4 C olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss all peppers in olive oil (keep the unused oil to sweat shallot and garlic). Roast in 350 degree oven until the skin blisters. Put peppers in plastic bag for 10 minutes for easier peeling. Remove skin and seeds from peppers. Rough chop peppers. In heavy pot, sweat garlic and shallots. Add peppers and quinoa, stocks and herbs. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Cover pot and cook for 15 minutes. Remove herbs and adjust seasoning.
