  • 450gm minced lamb
  • 6 red peppers, top removed and seeded
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried mint, crushed
  • 250ml water
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh parsley to taste
  • 415ml chicken stock

Method

Preheat an oven to 180° C / Gas Mark 4.

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

Stir in the rice, salt, black pepper and mint; cook 5 minutes longer.

Add the water and parsley.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the water has been completely absorbed by the rice, about 15 minutes.

Stir the chicken stock and chopped tomatoes together in an oven-proof dish that will just fit the peppers. Scoop the lamb mixture into the peppers and place them into the dish.
