Loaded with quinoa, kidney beans, halloumi and spring onions, these stuffed peppers are sure to bring some flavour to your dinner table. 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Servings: 4 people

Preparation

Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C, and grease a baking dish with oil.

Arrange the halved peppers in the dish; set aside.

Mix the kidney beans, quinoa, halloumi and spring onions in a bowl and season.

Stuff each halved pepper with this mixture.

Toss the tomatoes in 1 tsp oil.

Top each stuffed pepper half with a few tomatoes, gently pressing them into the quinoa mixture to secure.

Put the dish into the hot oven and roast for 40-45 minutes, or until the peppers are cooked through.

While the peppers are roasting, make the salsa verde.

Put the ingredients into the small bowl of a food processor with 50ml water and a little seasoning, then pulse until smooth.

To serve, drizzle over the peppers and put the remainder in a bowl alongside.

Serve with a green salad, if you like.
