This is a gorgeous dish and great all year round. Try it with a big fresh salad in the summer, or with cooked veg on the side in the winter. Filling, tasty and fresh.
200g minced turkey
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp pitted, chopped kalamata olives
2 tsp dried oregano
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 red peppers, halved and deseeded
4-8 tsp grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.
Mix the turkey, egg, olives, oregano and generous amounts of salt and pepper together.
Stuff this mixture into the four pepper halves, then top each with 1-2 tsp of grated Parmesan.
Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Serve with a side salad or cooked vegetables.
