Ingredients
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 cup couscous (follow directions on the box to make this—it's so quick! Hint: A flavored couscous, like garlic and olive oil, works awesome in this dish.)
  • 1 cup veggie burger crumbles
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes (mine also had green chilies)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • some nutritional yeast, to taste (optional)
  • some salt and pepper, to taste
  • a bit of olive oil or cooking spray, to sauté in
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the tops off of both bell peppers, and remove the seeds and such from the inside. Chop up any of the usable part of the top and set aside.
  3. Boil a pot of salted water, plop in the two peppers, and cover. Reduce to a simmer and let look for 5 to 7 minutes, then remove and carefully drain the water.
  4. While your peppers are simmering, in a large pan, sauté your onions and the chopped up peppers that you set aside in a tiny bit of olive oil, until the onion softens a bit. Add in your veggie burger crumble and continue to stir for another 3 minutes, then add in your diced tomatoes and nutritional yeast (if using), and mix it all up. After 2 more minutes, remove from heat, and then mix in your couscous, salt and pepper.
  5. Grab an 8×8 glass dish and place your two peppers in there, then fill with the mixture—you'll have some left, likely.
  6. Pop the dish in the oven, and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Snack on the leftover filling mixture while it's cooking!
