Ingredients

  • 1 Cup couscous
  • 4 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 4 yellow bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 8 plum tomatoes
  • 8 flat mushrooms, stalks removed
  • 1 Cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 Cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 Cup pitted green olives, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 2 Tablespoons roughly chopped mint
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the couscous in a bowl and pour over hot water, vegetable broth, or chicken broth just to cover by half a thumbnail. Leave to absorb.

Place the bell peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms in a roasting pan. Roast until just lightly softened, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, fluff up the couscous with a fork. Add the feta, pine nuts, olives, garlic, and mint. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix carefully. Spoon into the pepper and tomato halves and over the mushroom caps. Drizzle olive oil on top and return to the oven until the feta is just melting and the top of the filling is crusty, about 15 minutes. Drizzle with olive oil before serving.

Stuffed Peppers Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Stuffed Peppers Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
