  • 100ml low-fat natural yogurt

Method

  • STEP 2

    Drain and mix with the red onion, tomatoes, hazelnuts, lemon juice, coriander and parsley, and season with salt and black pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Cut the tops off the peppers, reserving them, and remove all of the pith and seeds from the inside.

  • STEP 4

    Take a little slice off the bottom so that they sit flat, but try not to make a hole.

  • STEP 5

    Divide the tabbouleh between the peppers, put their lids back on and drizzle with a little olive oil.

  • STEP 6

    Put on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes until tender.

  • STEP 7

    For the dressing, put the feta, yogurt and lemon juice in a food processor with 1-2 tbsp of water and some seasoning, and whizz.

  • STEP 8

    Serve with the baked peppers with some dressed rocket.
