Ingredients
  • 4 red Romano peppers, trimmed, halved and de-seeded
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • Half a courgette, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed or finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 400 grams minced lamb
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Chicken or vegetable stock
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 50g goat’s cheddar, grated (optional)
Method
  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sauté over a medium heat.
  2. Add the onions, carrots, courgette and garlic, adding a pinch of salt to stop them burning and cook the vegetable mixture slowly for ten minutes until softened.
  3. Push the veg to one side of the pan, then add the mince and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until brown all over, before mixing it with the vegetables.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and add enough stock (or water) just to loosen the sauce a little.
  5. Add the rosemary, bay leaf and tomato puree, stir through and leave to simmer gently for 30 minutes or until the mixture has reduced and become less liquid.
  6. While the meat is cooking, pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees C.
  7. When the meat mixture is ready, fill the pepper halves and place into the oven for 20 minutes.
  8. Then remove from the oven, sprinkle with the grated cheese if using, and put back into the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. Serve with new potatoes, rice or quinoa, and a colourful, crunchy salad.
