  • 4 - assorted bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 5 tablespoons - extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 - shallots, halved and thinly sliced
  • - kosher salt and ground pepper
  • 1 - large tomato, cored and chopped
  • 1/3 cups - golden raisins
  • 1 cups - plain couscous
  • 1 cups - chopped fresh mint or parsley, or a combination, as desired
  • 1 cups - crumbled feta
  • 1 - large egg, lightly beaten
  • - mixed greens, for serving
  • Directions:

    Heat grill to medium-high. Drizzle peppers with 2 tablespoons of oil. Grill, turning once, until charred in spots, about 10 to 12 minutes.

    Meanwhile, combine 3 tablespoons oil with shallots and a pinch of salt in a large cast-iron skillet; place on grill. Cook, stirring often, until shallots soften, about 5 minutes. Add tomato and raisins; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

    Add couscous and 1-1/2 cups of water; season with salt and ground pepper. Simmer, stirring, until water has evaporated, about 4 minutes; remove from heat.

    Transfer mixture to a bowl; let cool slightly, then stir in mint, cheese and egg.

    Season insides of peppers with salt and ground pepper; place in skillet. Divide filling among peppers, and return skillet to grill.

    Cover and cook until filling binds, about 5 minutes. Serve, drizzled with oil, alongside greens.
