Amaranth and red peppers make a light meal for lunch or supper.

Harissa Amaranth Stuffed Peppers

Get healthy with this Spicy Vegetable Dish

Devised and cooked by Caroline Fernandes.

This recipe easily makes enough for around 6 small to medium sized stuffed pepper halves. One half is enough as a starter and two halves would make a light main served with a side salad.

Ingredients:

- 1 cup/190-200g of Whole Amaranth
- 40g of Semi-dried Tomatoes
- 3 small-medium sized red peppers or 430g-450g
- Half a large aubergine -130g/150g
- 1 medium sized red onion
- Butter or High Omega Coconut Butter for frying.
- 4 tsp of Chilli Pepper Pete's Harissa Chilli Paste
- 30g of Sicilian or Himalayan Pine Nuts
- Feta Cheese, as a topping. (optional)
- Olive Oil for coating the peppers.


1) Pre-heat the oven to 160°c/Fan 150°c/Gas Mark 2.

2) Grease a baking tray. Wash each pepper and slice in half length-ways. Take out the seeds. You can leave the stalk as this helps keep the shape of pepper whilst cooking.

3) Rub the outside of each pepper half with olive oil and place into the baking tray. Set aside.

4) Put the Amaranth into a pan and add at least double the amount of water. So, 1 cup of Amaranth to 2½ cups of boiling water.

5) Bring to a slow bubble and cook until you have a porridge-like consistency and all the water has been absorbed. The Amaranth should still have a slight crunch and the mix will look semi-translucent.

6) While the Amaranth is cooking chop the aubergine into smallish chunks, around 2cm by 1cm. Add a knob of butter to a non-stick frying pan and fry the aubergine on a medium heat.

7) Finely chop the onion and add to the frying pan once the aubergine has started to colour a little. Fry off until both the onion and aubergine are properly cooked.

8) Stir in the Harissa Chilli Paste. Chop the Semi-Dried Tomatoes into half and add these to the pan.

9) Then in a separate non-stick frying pan and gently toast the pine nuts until they are golden brown. Stir these through the aubergine mix. Set to one side.

10) Remove the Amaranth from the heat and mix in the vegetable mix and pine nuts.

11) Spoon the mix into the peppers.

12) Roast the peppers for 35-40 minutes, or until the peppers are softened.

13) Remove from the oven and serve.

14) Optionally: crumble feta cheese onto the peppers and grill under a medium-hot grill for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
