> 4 green bell peppers
> 1 (15 oz) can cooked lentils
> 4 oz sharp Cheddar cheese
> 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
> 1 (15.9 oz) pkg Nature's Promise® Whole Grain Brown Rice
> Grilling cooking spray
> 2 green onions


Set grill to medium. Halve peppers lengthwise and remove seeds. Grill, covered and cut-sides down, 5 min. Transfer to cutting board.
Meanwhile, drain and rinse the lentils. Coarsely grate the cheese.
In a large bowl, combine lentils, Cajun seasoning, and cheese, reserving ¼ cup of cheese for topping. Break up the rice and add to bowl, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
Coat outsides of peppers with cooking spray. Divide rice mixture among pepper cavities. Top with reserved cheese. Place peppers on grill and cook, covered, 15 min., until cheese has melted and peppers are slightly charred on bottoms. Thinly slice the green onions and sprinkle over peppers as garnish.
