Now, you’re probably wondering what on earth I’m talking about ‘halloweeny stuffed peppers’ but after reading the Tesco magazine recently I received vast amounts of inspo in terms of cooking, something which caught my eye especially in the coming up to Halloween these looked perfect!
I’m not too keen on peppers (yes, I know I have no idea why I chose to make stuffed peppers) but I thought I’d try something different and it didn’t look too hard so why not?
Best thing is there’s hardly any ingredients and it takes hardly any time to make. Start off by preheating the oven too 200 degrees. Then rinse the peppers and cut the tops off. You can save them for when you plate up as a bit of decoration but we just discarded them. Make sure all the seeds are gone, then to make them ‘halloweeny’ and resemble a pumpkin cut out three small triangles, two for the eyes then an upside down one for the nose. Put in the microwave for five minutes this helps them to soften.
Whilst in the microwave prepare the couscous, we used one which already had vegetables in it so just follow the instructions on the packet putting the contents into boiling water for around 10 minutes. Alternatively if you’re using the plain couscous make as normal and mix in whatever seasoning you like. Stuff the couscous into the peppers and bake at 200 degrees for around 20 – 30 mins. Around halfway through baking sprinkle the top of the pepper with some grated cheese.
We served ours with some roast potatoes and it was delicious. Honestly the cutest and easiest Halloween treats you could possibly make! Oh and don’t worry the couscous does not fall out of the small triangles, let me know what you decide to make on Halloween! what have you got planned, a party, trick or treating? Remember to stay safe!
Also, make sure to stay tuned for the run up to Halloween as we’ve tested out a few recipes with pumpkins and butternut squash which where delicious, as well as some Halloween treats!
