  3. Now, add the sweet pepper and garlic and cook for a further few minutes until fragrant.
  4. Next, add all the other ingredients, except the bell peppers, and a cup of water and mix.
  5. Now, cook over a medium heat for 20 minutes, mixing occasionally.
  6. Taste and adjust spices, if necessary, before taking off the heat.
  7. Finally, divide the mixture between the halved peppers and baked in the oven for 10-15 minutes on gas mark 6, until crispy on top and the peppers are soft.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Notes:

  • Salt and pepper as always should be added throughout the cooking process.
  • I’d highly recommend adding some vegan cheese before popping in the oven.
