Mediterranean Stuffed Bell Peppers

"This dish may be your main entrée served with Pita bread or other Mediterranean flat bread. If it is your main entrée, you may wish to allow two pepper halves per person depending on their appetite size. It is beautiful served as part of a buffet and lends itself well to a Brunch, Lunch or Dinner party. Prepare ahead for those busy days and pop it into the oven 45 minutes before your family dinner time. A side salad goes well with the peppers."

    We liked this recipe; tasty and satisfying! Cooking couscous in buttery water was new to me and I was particularly pleased with the resulting flavour and texture. Although I measured the ingredients carefully, I found the recipe made too much stuffing for two peppers; I had enough for at least one more pepper or possibly two. No matter, we had the left-over stuffing as a couscous salad the next day :-)

    We loved these! We are gluten free, so we had to substitute quinoa for the couscous. I didn't have any mint, so I left that out. Next time I will probably substitute some oregano & basil for the mint. And my dd asked for more cheese. :) I can't wait to make them again!

    These stuffed peppers were alright if not a little bland. If it wasn't for the hot pepper flakes it would not have a lot of taste. It did have a passable taste , I thought the feta, garlic, onions and olives would have been more noticeable, I think if I made it again I would use less couscous and more of the other ingredients. The parmesan cheese was a nice finish. Good luck in the contest.
