Moroccan-Style Stuffed Peppers

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 2/3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 4 medium-to-large bell peppers tops cut off and seeded
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup currants
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  • Cook rice according to package directions.
  • Place peppers upside-down in a microwave-safe round casserole dish just large enough to fit them. Add 1/2 inch water to the dish and cover with a lid or inverted dinner plate. Microwave on High until the peppers are tender but still hold their shape, 3 to 6 minutes. Drain the water and turn the peppers right-side up.
  • Cook garlic for 2-3 mins in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, Stir in currants, cumin and cinnamon; cook for 1 minute. Stir in the rice and cook for 30 seconds more. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 cup vegetable broth, mint, orange zest, salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the rice mixture into the peppers. Pour the remaining 2 cups vegetable juice into the dish and cover. Microwave on High until the juice and filling are hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the peppers with the sauce; garnish with mint, if desired.
