Stuffed Red Peppers


  • 1/4 cup uncooked millet, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers
  • 1/3 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint or 1/2 teaspoon dried mint flakes
  • 1 teaspoon shredded lemon peel
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh chopped oregano or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • In a saucepan, bring millet and broth to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until millet is tender and broth is absorbed, about 30-35 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cool.
  • Meanwhile, cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. In a large saucepan, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.
  • With a fork, fluff cooled millet. Add the corn, onion, celery, nuts, green onion and seasonings; blend well.
  • Spoon into sweet peppers. Drizzle with oil. Place in a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until tender.
  • Yield: 2 servings.

Note: Look for millet in the grains or natural food aisle of your grocery store. 3/4 cup cooked couscous may be substituted for the millet and vegetable broth.
