Baked Stuffed Peppers
From Tilda Kitchen
- Serves 2
An easy midweek meal that is sure to be a family favourite! Our Lemon & Herb rice adds a zesty twist to these tasty peppers stuffed with beef mince and lots of vegetables! For a delicious vegetarian version replace the beef with canned chickpeas. Perfect served with soured cream and a touch of smoked paprika.
Tildalicious tip: Tinned tomatoes are a great way of upping your intake of vegetables. 1 tin of tomatoes contains 2 of your 5 a day!
