  • Combine millet, water, and vegetable bouillon in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until onion is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until beef is crumbly and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, and black pepper; stir and simmer to combine flavors, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix cooked millet, cilantro, and feta cheese into ground beef mixture. Spoon mixture into red bell peppers; place in prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until peppers are slightly tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Place the tops back on the peppers; bake until peppers are tender, 10 to 15 more minutes.

Very good. This has a Southwest flavour and it was a nice change that surprised the family. The smell alone will tell you that this is not your usual stuffed bell peppers. I did however change the recipe a bit. I didn't use feta cheese but parmiggiano reggiano instead. The outcome is quite moist. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

It is a great recipe! I recommend decreasing the amount of water by half a cup while cooking. Its a recipe worth trying and a great way to use millet. Read More
