Spicy CousCous Stuffed Peppers


Don’t you just love when things work out better then you expected? Like your meals, you plan one but end up with completely different meal. I definitely love. It gives this nice, warm feeling inside me. Very satisfied feeling I should say.

Like these peppers. They suppose to be stuffed with meat and some other vegetables, and slowly simmered in a tomato sauce in a pot over a stove. But because time wasn’t on my side I had to think of something else. Quickly looking into my cupboards I decided to go with couscous. Perfect.

Since there are not a lot of preparations involved, it makes perfect mid-week meal. Quick, easy and delicious. What more can you ask for?
