Ingredients

  • 2 bell peppers medium
  • 2 onions medium
  • 1 tomato
  • 200 g couscous
  • 250 g cooked or canned kidney beans
  • 200 ml tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • spices of your choice Ideas: curry, garlic salt, lemon pepper

Instructions

  • Cut onions and tomato in small pieces and cook in a frying pan with oil until onions become golden.
  • Following the instructions on your couscous package, take the necessary amount of hot water and mix it with the chosen spices. Then put the couscous in a bowl, add the water-spice mixture and cover the bowl. The couscous will absorb all the spicy water and be ready in about 5 – 8 minutes.
  • While couscous is getting ready, cut the bell peppers in half and clean them from seeds.
  • Mix couscous, onions, tomatoes, beans and tomato sauce together. Do not worry if the couscous seems too dry for you – it will absorb also the tomato sauce and liquids from the cooked onions and tomatoes.
  • Stuff abundantly bell pepper halves with the couscous mixture and place them on a baking tray that is lined with parchment paper.
  • cook the stuffed bell peppers at 390°F in a preheated ventilated oven for 20 minutes or until the bell peppers are soft.
