  • 4 large bell peppers
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup crumbled feta (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup couscous
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Slice a very thin layer from the base of each bell pepper so they sit flat. Slice off tops just below stem. Discard stems; chop tops, and place in a medium bowl. Remove ribs and seeds from peppers.

  2. Add beans, feta, couscous, scallion whites, garlic, and oregano to bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Stuff peppers with bean mixture; place upright in slow cooker. Cover; cook on high, 4 hours.

  3. Sprinkle peppers with scallion greens; serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Notes

To make in the oven: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In step 2, use a 5-quart Dutch oven or ovenproof pot with a tight-fitting lid; add 1 cup water. Cover; bake until peppers are tender, about 1 hour. Proceed with step 3.

    HORRIBLE! Do not make! It COMPLETELY fell apart and left me with a slow cooker pot of feta-mush. Not to mention it tasted horrible. Has the creator of this recipe ever tried to put a stuffed pepper in a slow cooker, ever?!?! Will be ordering pizza tonight.

      I make stuffed peppers in my slow cooker all the time. I only make them in the slow cooker. I can't wait to try this recipe but I think I'll have to put some extra seasoning in them.

    I made this last night with mixed results. My husband and I loved the peppers. Next time we'll add a some chopped olives. However, my 6 qt slow cooker is too big for this recipe. The poor peppers were cooked to death, stuck to the bottom and fell apart when I tried to serve them. Next time I'll cook them in the oven.

    Love Sarah Carey. She always delivers. However, not a fan of Canneli Beans I prefer chick peas or just more couscous. I Cr 13:8a, Love never fails !

    Sorry- I also added 4 mushrooms the second time I made this. I think their moisture really helped the quinoa cook. The first time I made this, I thought this dish was a little one dimensional so definitely feel free to add your favorite ingredients.

    This recipe was so great. I had to substitute quinoa and it was dynamite. When I placed the bell pepper in the crock pot I just drizzled some veggie broth inside each bell pepper. I also added a jalapeƱo and a couple dashes of thyme, cayenne, and paprika. I doubled the garlic and oregano the second time I made this. I just have to warn everyone about cooking times. They really vary from crock pot to crock pot. Mine cooked faster then four hours on "keep warm" so don't stray too far away.

    About the couscous, am I supposed to cook it first?

    I used a can of drained diced tomatoes instead of the beans, cooked in the oven and they were yummy. Served as a side with baked salmon

    Love this! Followed recipe exactly, except I did add pre-cooked diced chicken and stuffed 6 peppers. Cooked in crockpot for 3 hours and turned out perfect! Even my little ones liked it.

    I cubed and roasted an eggplant and added that and a can of drained diced tomatoes to this recipe.
