  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Halve the peppers lengthways and scrape out the seeds with a teaspoon (discard the seeds). Transfer to a lined baking tray (or two smaller trays). Spray with a little oil, season, then roast for 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and spray with the oil. Add the leek and cook for 5 mins or until softened. Add the mince and brown, stirring to break up any clumps. Add the mustard and stock and simmer for 2 mins before adding the soft cheese. Stir into the sauce until melted.
  3. Add the greens, cook for 5 mins, stirring often, until wilted and the sauce coats the mince. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste.
  4. Pile the filling into the peppers, scatter with the Cheddar, then return to the oven for 20 mins until the cheese is golden. Serve up 2 halves per plate with a handful of rocket.
