Update: Giada De Laurentii’s Couscous-stuffed Peppers

The roasted pepper obsession continues …. Last night I made Giada De Laurentii’s couscous-stuffed peppers. (See previous post here.)

I used yellow raisins instead of currents because that’s what I had on hand, and quinoa instead of couscous just because. So maybe I shouldn’t blame her for the result….

“When I think of a vegetarian meal, this is the kind of dish I think of,” said The Professor. “You know, it tastes OK, but it’s kind of bland.”

It also felt more like a side dish than an entree.

If I try the recipe again, I’ll definitely use currants and I’d add more feta and possibly some pine nuts. Does anyone have any other ideas?

  1. Delicious combination will be if you add feta.

  2. hi there:) I borrowed a picture of a mashing of something yellow from your fantastic blog, and if you hate the idea of it, I did off course give you credit for the picture, with a direct link to your page.. but if you hate it, I will off corse remove it and get one for myself. Just letting you know so that you know, and 🙂 have a good day!

  3. Martha,

    I substituted artichokes for spinach and dried cranberries. Couldn’t find currants. Few more garbanzo beans. Added tahini and a little sesame oil to sauce. Lots of feta. Very good.
