• Juice of ½ lemon
• Salt, dry mint, cinnamon
• Freshly ground pepper

1. Clean and cut the tops off the peppers and tomatoes to create lids, set the tops aside.
Scoop out the pepper seeds and discard. Scoop out the tomato flesh and seeds and reserve.
Cut the aubergines and courgettes lengthways and scoop out the seeds and flesh.

3. Add the rice and a cup of vegetable stock, raise to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Season with salt and pepper and stir in the herbs. Place the vegetables in a large baking pan and fill them.
Place the lids on the peppers and tomatoes.

Chef's tip:

• For a healthier dish, instead of frying the vegetable you may preheat them in the oven.
• You may choose not to cook the vegetables and filling during the preparation stage but then
you will need to cook the stuffed vegetables for longer in the oven without frying them first.
