Lunchbox: Couscous Stuffed Peppers


Following our previous lunchbox post, I have decided to create another couscous post because I am sure you have not used the whole packet from the last dish (yay to saving money)



Now, I am fully aware that this dish takes much longer to make and probably does require for it to be made the night before, but trust me, it is so worth it. This recipe would be best to create in a batch as the mince does make a lot, which even if . you had left over, you could easily create another dish out of it for another day.

Pair these stuffed peppers with a light side salad and you're set. These peppers could be eaten hot or cold!


Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 50 mins

Ingredients:

 ½ pound ground beef
½ cup couscous
1 cup crumbled Feta
½ cup chopped dried tomatoes
4 sliced spring onions
- 4 bell peppers

Instructions:


1. Brown ½ pound ground beef. Cook ½ cup couscous according to the package directions.

2. Mix the beef, couscous, 4 sliced spring onions, 1 cup crumbled Feta, and ½ cup chopped dried tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.

3. Stuff into 4 hollowed-out bell peppers and bake at 400° F, covered, until tender, 45 to 50 minutes.

  1. These sound delicious! I don't use couscous a lot when I cook because I have no idea what to do with that and always worried it was a bit bland but this sounds really tasty! I love the inclusion of feta, my favourite cheese!

  3. It's like you've read my mind because I was only thinking this morning that I have half a packet of cous cous in my cupboard that I really could do with using up! I really enjoy having peppers for lunch, although I usually just have them in raw stick form because they're so tasty, but this sounds like an equally if not more delectable idea! This is something that I will certainly be recreated with some veggie mince!
