Stuffed peppers with couscous

These simple stuffed peppers are cooked in the oven, making a perfect lunch or light dinner when working from home.

You do need to cook the couscous first, but this is so quick that you can let it do its thing while you’re chopping the other ingredients.

You may well have some leftover couscous mixture that won’t fit into the pepper. If you have some fresh tomatoes, lettuce or cucumber lurking in your fridge, you could turn it into a nice little side salad. Perfect.
