  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. 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. Cook in the microwave for 10 minutes, or until peppers are tender. Turn peppers every 2 to 3 minutes to ensure even cooking.

This recipe has potential but I find millet to be kind of dry so if I make it again I will use quinoa instead.

I added fresh garlic, cayenne, cumin and chili powder to the millet and it was excellent!

Delicious! I added cumin, 3-4 cloves of garlic, and fresh cilantro. I cut my peppers in half and laid them in a glass dish with tomato sauce at the bottom (a thin layer). I baked them at 350 f...

Great recipe! Only problem was that the bouillon made the millet way to salty. Then again I was using a product called, "Better than Bouillon". It's always worked great but it must be way sal...

Replaced the tomatoes with our favorite salsa and added some cumin. Yummy! This will be added to our regular dinner favorites! Love that it cooks in the microwave! Thanks for a great recipe.
