Red Bell Peppers Stuffed With Millet

Ingredients : serves 6

  • 4 large red bell peppers, cut in half and seeded
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cups cooked millet
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh mint or 1 tablespoon dried
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  1. Sprinkle the peppers with sea salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for about 4 minutes, or until the onion is softened.
  3. Add the cooked millet, mint, parsley, capers, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir to mix well. Taste for seasonings.
  4. Stuff this mixture into the pepper halves. Arrange the peppers in a glass baking dish large enough to hold them in one layer. Pour 1 cup of water around, not over, the peppers.
  5. Cover the pan tightly with foil.
  6. Bake for about 1 hour, or until the peppers are fork-tender.
