Taste Tuesdays: Couscous-stuffed Green Peppers and Tzatziki-topped Burgers
Monday nights we are going to try out new recipes so I can share them on Tuesdays with you. Mondays are kind of a blah day, so why not have something to look forward to by cooking up a nice meal with your significant other, friends, or just for you because you deserve it? Nothing like sparking a little creativity by whipping up a yummy, easy meal.
This meal is easy, light, and perfect for summer. It also takes things we are used to eating (turker burgers and green peppers) and spins them in a new way.
Two whole green peppers, tops cuts off and deseeded
1/2 cup cooked couscous
1/2 cup pine nuts, roasted
3 oz. cooked smoked summer sausage
2 oz. parmasean cheese
2 tsp. Garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roast pine nuts for 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook couscous as directed. Combine all ingredients together and stir. Place cored green peppers on a baking sheet and fill with the couscous mixture, then back in the oven for 20 minutes.
