I made this last week but didn’t take a photo, which I should have done, because it was bare noms (that means ‘very nice’ in young person speak [don’t worry, that will be the last time I use that phrase, honest]).
Today I made it again and did take a photo, and you’ll have to take my word for it that it tastes nicer than it looks. Actually, it looks fine in real life, I’m just rubbish at taking photos.
Anyway, the recipe:
Leek and mushroom stuffed peppers (serves 2)
2 peppers, any colour, tops sliced off and deseeded
3 mushrooms, sliced and roughly chopped
1 leek, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
75g Cheddar, grated
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
- Place the peppers in a baking dish and bake at 200C for about 20 minutes, or until just about turning brown
- In the meantime, melt the butter in a frying pan with the oil and fry the leek, mushrooms and garlic for about 5 minutes, until soft
- Take the leek and mushroom mixture off the heat, season with salt and pepper and stir in the grated cheese
- Fill the peppers with the leek and mushroom mixture and put back in the oven for about 10 minutes
