  • Now add the rest of the ingredients (with the exception of the cheese and spring onions) and cook until the mixture thickens a bit.
  • Wash the pepper, cut in half, remove the stem, the inner membrane and the seeds.
  • Now fill both the pepper halves with the bean mixture, top it with some cheese, and bake in a baking sheet until done, for about 30 minutes or so. Alternatively, to keep the bottom from crisping up too much, bake these in a loaf pan, by adding some vegetable broth to the bottom(about a quarter of an inch).
