Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and on a baking tray line a parchment paper.

  2. To prepare the stuffing, in a medium size bowl crumble the tofu using your hands and add all of the ingredients except from the peppers and 1/2 of the olive oil. Let the stuffing aside to prepare the peppers.

  3. Thoroughly wash the peppers, cut the head and remove the seeds from inside. Then cut lengthwise, almost until the end. Remove all remaining seeds, add a splash of olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt inside and outside of the peppers using your hands.

  4. Add the stuffing, you might find it easier to use a teaspoon as you don’t want to break them. Place on the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Happy cooking everyone!
