Couscous & Apricot Stuffed Peppers

couscous peppers




What a unique dish!  This is definitely a recipe that you could tweak to your liking.  I like apricot flavor but we noticed we didn’t love a full 1/2 cup of them in the peppers.  We’ll add apricot in the future, just less.  Yummy recipe and it’s interesting to see a pepper recipe without a tomato-based sauce!


  • 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup raw couscous
  • 4 sliced scallions (optional – I didn’t do this, just added onion powder)
  • 1 cup crumbled Feta
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • salt/pepper
  • 4 hollowed-out bell peppers


  1. Brown 1/2 lb. ground beef.
  2. Cook 1/2 cup couscous according to package directions.
  3. Mix the beef, couscous, 4 sliced scallions, 1 cup crumbled Feta, and 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Stuff mixture into 4 hollowed-out bell peppers and bake at 400° F, covered, until tender, 45-50 minutes.
