  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cut the tops off the orange and green peppers, leaving the stalks on. Scoop out the seeds.
  2. With a sharp knife, carve 3 triangles into the orange peppers for the eyes and nose, and squares for teeth. Carve Frankenstein-style faces in the green peppers.
  3. Put the vegetable rice in a large bowl with the mozzarella, parsley and basil. Mix together, then spoon into the peppers. Replace the tops and brush with oil. Arrange on a greased tray and bake for 25-30 mins, until tender.
  4. Remove from the oven and insert 2 cocktail sticks* into the sides of each green pepper. Hang an olive slice off the end of each stick for a 'nuts and bolts' detail. Serve warm.
