  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Place the pepper halves in a shallow baking dish, skin-side up, and roast for 15-20 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, tip the spices into a pan and warm briefly to release their flavour. Tip in the tomatoes and stir in the onion, garlic, chilli, aubergine and kidney beans with their juice. Cover the pan and cook for 20 mins, stirring occasionally. Try not to add any extra liquid; the mixture should be quite dry. Stir in the coriander.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the egg with the feta and fromage frais. Turn the peppers over and pile the aubergine mixture into each one, packing it down as much as you can. Top with the feta mixture and return to the oven for 10 mins more until the topping has lightly set. Don’t worry if some of it flows off, as it will just set in the dish. Serve the peppers on the rocket with lime wedges for squeezing over.

A really nice tasting dish. I did add a single square of 70% dark chocolate and a squeeze of tomato paste to the filling mix to make it taste a bit more like a chilli but otherwise very nice.

One thing to note is that unless you have really huge peppers, there's far too much filling for just two. I had enough left over to fill another two...

I was a bit disappointed and realised that I love my meat. That can be a very good side dish though.

Very simple and delicious. I added some brown rice into the stuffing. Great 'side' dish for barbeques (and not only).
