Baked Peppers with Oaty Nut Stuffing (h)

Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6.

Cut the tops off each pepper to make lids and stand upright in a small roasting tin.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 4-5 minutes until softened. Add the nuts, basil and oats and season well, cook for 2 minutes.

Spoon the stuffing mixture into the 4 peppers and place the lids on top. Bake for 30 minutes until softened.
