Stuffed Pointed Sweet Peppers

stuffed-pointed-sweet-peppers

Sometimes food pictures can be quite enticing and that is what made me try these sweet peppers. Seeing them in magazines and TV programmes made me want to try them. So I made a simple mix of cous cous, feta cheese and olives and this makes a good basic filling. It is very versatile dish and you can add other ingredients to it to make it your own. You can also try various other fillings like, spiced mash potatoes, herbed rice, other roasted vegetables mixed with orzo (rice shaped pasta). This is a healthy vegetarian option to have as a light lunch or a side dish.

Stuffed Pointed Sweet Peppers

Ingredients

Preparation time: 20 mins               Cooking time: 20 mins                     Serves: 2

2 Pointed sweet peppers

1/2 cup cous cous

1 1/2 cup hot water

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup green or black olives

1/4  of juice & zest of lemon

1 tbsp harrisa herb mix

1 tbsp olive oil

50g feta cheese cut into 1 cm cubes

Method

1) Cut the tops of the pointed sweet peppers, and with the help of a spoon remove the seeds. Oil the outside of the peppers and place in a pre-heated griddle pan ( you can do this in the grill or oven also).

2) In a large bowl place the cous cous and all the other ingredients, then pour the hot water and mix with a fork. Mix it regularly with a fork so as the grains do not stick.

3) Meanwhile turn the peppers regularly so that they are cooked evenly all around. Once done remove from the heat and cool slightly before filling the cooked cous cous. You will have to be careful as the cooked pointed sweet pepper can tear easily. Enjoy !
