Barley-Stuffed Peppers with Apples, Pecans, and Stilton Cheese

I made this recipe up one night to use up some leftover Stilton. It's a flavourful, low-fat, low-calorie main dish that goes great with a green salad and maybe some whole-wheat rolls.
Stilton is a very strong-flavoured cheese, so you can get away without adding very much to keep the fat content of these peppers low. You might prefer to use a different kind of cheese or use less if you don't like the flavour of Stilton.
Brown rice can be substituted for the barley if you prefer.
This recipe makes 12 servings, but is easy to halve. Or else you can make the full amount of stuffing and save some for another purpose -- it's wonderful cold on salads or warm in pitas.
TIP: the barley can be prepared early in the day and refrigerated until needed.
