Millet, black beans and tomatoes are stuffed into pepper shells, and then baked in the microwave oven. These vegetarian stuffed peppers are easy to make and are also gluten free!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup millet
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cubes vegetable bouillon
  • 5 medium bell peppers
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
Directions
  1. 1. Combine the millet, water and vegetable bouillon in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.
  2. 2. Slice the tops off of the peppers, and remove the seeds and cores. Set aside. When the millet is done, stir in the tomatoes and black beans. Spoon into the peppers until filled. Place the peppers into a glass baking dish, and cover with plastic wrap.
  3. 3. Cook in the microwave for 10 minutes, or until peppers are tender. Turn peppers every 2 to 3 minutes to ensure even cooking.
