Ingredients

  • 5 small capsicums (choosing ones that can ‘stand up’ on their own will make cooking less messy!)
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 4 tbsp hot water
  • 250g firm tofu, crumbled
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 3 cups silverbeet, chopped (or spinach)
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp tamari
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°c.
  2. Cut the top off the capsicum (keep the top for later) and remove seeds.
  3. Place the miso paste and hot water in a small bowl and stir until miso dissolves.
  4. Place the tofu and garlic into a fry pan stir until tofu begins to cook.
  5. Add the tomatoes, silverbeet, curry powder and miso paste mixture stirring frequently.
  6. Add the tomato paste, tamari, peas and chickpeas.
  7. Cook on low heat until the silverbeet is cooked.
  8. Spoon the mixture into the capsicums and place the capsicum lids on top. Place on an oven tray ‘standing up’.
  9. Bake about 15 minutes, until the capsicum is cooked through and lightly charred in patches.

Optional: Serve with a side salad (e.g. lettuce, cucumber, radishes)
