Stuffed peppers with turkey bolognese

What’s not to love about melted cheese and a bolognese sauce? The turkey mince is loaded with B vitamins and is lower in saturated fat than beef or lamb mince. By stuffing it all inside a red pepper, you also benefit from extra vitamin C and fibre.

    1. Place the peppers on a baking tray, drizzle with half the olive oil, and cook in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes.

    2. Pour the remaining olive oil into a frying pan and brown the turkey mince over a medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from the pan and set aside.

    3. Add the red onion and carrot to the pan and sauté over a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until softened and starting to colour.

    4. Stir in the garlic, fennel seeds and rosemary and cook for 1 minute more. Add the chopped tomatoes, bay leaf, turkey mince and the rest of the dried herbs. Pour over the stock and bring to a gentle simmer.

    5. Add the Worcestershire sauce and tomato purée, stir well and cook gently for 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

    6. Stuff the mince into the peppers and place back in the oven for 20 minutes, adding the cheese on top for the last 5 minutes.

    7. Cook the couscous according to packet instructions and combine with the remaining ingredients. Season to taste and divide between plates. Serve topped with the stuffed peppers.
