Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup couscous, uncooked

  • 1

    cup water

  • 6

    whole bell peppers, any color

  • 1

    red bell pepper, diced

  • 1

    yellow bell pepper, diced

  • 3

    celery ribs, chopped

  • 2

    scallions, diced

  • 2

    tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/4

    cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Bring the water to a boil and add the couscous to the water. Cover and remove from the heat. Let the couscous sit for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, slice the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds. Set aside. In a bowl, combine the couscous, diced bell peppers, celery and scallions. In a separate bowl, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper. Whisk together. Pour the dressing over the couscous mixture and toss to combine. Evenly divide the couscous mixture into the bell peppers. Place the peppers in a baking dish and add a 1/2 inch of water to the pan. Bake the bell peppers for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until the peppers are tender. Serve hot.
