  3. Add 6 Roma tomatoes.
  4. Add 1/2 cup chopped onion.
  5. Add 1 stalk celery.
  6. Add 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts.
  7. Add 3 garlic cloves.
  8. Add 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme.
  9. Cook until tender.
  10. Add 4 cups cooked quinoa.
  11. Add 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper.
  12. Add 1 teaspoon salt.
  13. Add 1/2 teaspoon Parmesan cheese.
  14. Place 1/2 cup quinoa mixture into each pepper half.
  15. Cover with foil.
