Giant cous cous stuffed peppers

Giant cous cous stuffed peppers

Perfect as a mid-week meal, or served on a smaller scale as a starter.


4 large long red peppers

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 large onions roughly chopped

1 (regular sausage size) of chorizo chopped in to cubes

1 large courgette cut in to cubes

200g giant cous cous (cooked to pack instructions)

Approx 15 cherry tomatoes (I used a mix of yellow and red ones) cut in to quarters

Ground black pepper & salt to taste

Handful of fresh mint finely chopped

Grating of parmesan


  1. Slice peppers in half lengthways and place top to tail in a large baking dish – drizzle with 2 tablepoons of the olive oil.
  2. Fry off the onions, chorizo and courgette in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
  3. Season to taste, then add the cous cous and chopped tomatoes.
  4. Fill the peppers with the mix.
  5. Sprinkle over the fresh mint & grated parmesan then whack in the oven (gas mark 5) for 20-30 minutes – or until the peppers have become nicely wilted.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. That looks so good! I’m going to give this a try this week only I’ll probably have to use normal cous cous, I haven’t found the giant kind yet but I’ll keep looking! 🙂

      1. Thank you 🙂 Yes the postage can make it astronomical. I’ll keep an eye out in Sainsburys, if I don’t have any luck then I might just have to place a cheeky order 😉

    1. Thanks @NYinRome 🙂 It definitely tasted good… I could do with eating it again for lunch today!
