Bolognaise stuffed peppers

Bolognaise stuffed peppers (serves 4)

Ingredients
500g lean minced beef
1 tin diced tomatoes
1 carrot, finely diced
1 zucchini, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
4 red peppers tops and seeds removed
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
½ teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon olive oil plus extra to drizzle
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a pot on the stove and once hot, place the mince beef in the pot with salt and pepper to season. Cook on high until browned.
  2. Once the mince is browned, place the remaining ingredients (except peppers and remaining olive oil) in the pot, stir well, then cover with a lid and cook on high for about 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes, turn the heat down to medium and continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated (approximately 30 minutes).
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  5. Once the sauce is thick, scoop the beef mixture into the peppers.
  6. Drizzle some olive oil over the peppers, or lightly cover with spray olive oil, and place the capsicums on a baking tray.
  7. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

Serve with FODMAP-friendly vegetables or salad.
