Are you trying to stick to your New Year’s resolution of eating healthier? This tasty, easy recipe will help you do just that. We love stuffed peppers at our house and typically stuff them with ground beef and rice. I substituted the beef and rice with black beans and couscous. The results were amazing!
1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes, (do not drain)
2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cheese, shredded
1 cup couscous, cooked according to package directions
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 green, red, yellow or orange sweet peppers
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Wash the peppers, cut off the top and hollow out the inside. Cook couscous according to package directions. In a bowl combine cooked couscous with beans, tomatoes, onions, salt, pepper and cheese. Spoon mixture into peppers. Place peppers in a casserole dish and cover. Bake for 45 minutes or until peppers are soft when pierced with a fork. Makes 4 servings.
