Stuffed Peppers on the BBQ

Ingredients

  • 3 bell peppers (red, yellow and orange), seeded and halved 
  • 175 g (6 oz) Saputo Feta cheese, cut into small cubes 1 cm (½ in.) thick
  • 16 black olives, pitted and finely chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 125 mL (½ cup) chopped parsley
  • 125 mL (½ cup) raisins
  • 125 mL (½ cup) pine nuts, roasted
  • Juice extracted from 1 lemon
  • 45 mL (3 tbsp) lemon zest (about 3 lemons)
  • Olive oil, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh oregano, chopped (for garnish)

Couscous

  • 250 mL (1 cup) medium couscous
  • 250 mL (1 cup) vegetable broth
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp) butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring vegetable broth to a boil. Remove from heat. Add butter, salt and pepper. Stir in couscous, cover and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes or until broth is absorbed.
  2. Cut peppers in half, removing all seeds.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Drizzle inside of pepper halves with olive oil. Cook (cut side up) for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, combine couscous, chickpeas, raisins, roasted pine nuts, parsley, black olives, Fetos cheese, lemon juice and zest. Add olive oil to taste. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Fill each pepper half with the couscous mixture.
  6. Sprinkle with oregano and lemon zest just before serving.


Tip: Be careful not to overcook the peppers; they should be firm enough so they are easy to stuff.
