Stuffed peppers

This is an easy one! What you need are (for 3 to 4 stuffed peppers):

4 peppers of different colours
200g minced beef
1 celery stick, finely chopped
Half a can tomato paste
Onions, sliced/ finely chopped
Garlic, finely chopped
Some fresh oregano/ dried oregano to taste
Olive oil
Salt & freshly miled black pepper to taste

1] Preheat the oven to 200°C.

2] Slice the top of the peppers off and remove the seeds and membrane.

3] Line a baking tray with aluminium and place peppers on top. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes.

4] While the peppers are roasting in the oven, work on the minced beef. Heat a large non-stick frying pan with some olive oil. Add chopped onion and garlic. Then add the chopped celery. Now put in the minced beef and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, diligently break up the lumps with the back of your frying spatula.

5] Add the tomato paste and stir to combine. Add salt, pepper and oregano to taste.

6] If the peppers are done, remove them from the oven. Add the filling, cover and roast in the oven for a little while more. Add some cheese, if you like.

Gotta remove the
seeds and membrane..

There you go! Drizzle some olive
oil over it and pop it into the oven
