Before your little ghosts and goblins get sugared up this Halloween, line their stomachs with this cute and super-healthy snack. Substantial enough to make a meal for trick-or-treaters, these stuffed peppers are also a great idea for a side dish or Halloween party appetizer. Packed with whole grains and topped with mozzarella, they're bound to be a hit on any Halloween buffet.
For the filling, feel free to make your own blend of grains. We love the variety of textures from the Trader Joe's Harvest Grains Blend—a mixture of Israeli couscous, red and green orzo, spilt dried garbanzo beans and red quinoa. It's a perfect combination of soft and chewy from the couscous, orzo and quinoa, with a crunchier texture from the garbanzo beans. But any blend of grains will do the trick. (Or treat.)
