Ingredients:

3 red capsicum

3 green capsicum

1 and 1/4 cup medium grain rice

  2. Boil rice in boiling salted water until tender, about 10 min or until cooked. Drain and place in a bowl.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan. Cook your onions and garlic until soft. Add your tomatoes and cook for another 10 min.
  4. Add the rice and mix through, then add pine nuts and herbs. Optional: add grated cheese. Alternatively, add nutritional yeast or another dairy-free alternative.
  5. Divide your mix evenly amongst the capsicums, place 2 slices of bocconcini on top of each capsicum.
  6. Put the capsicum lid back on. Bake at 180 degrees for about 35 min or until rice is warm and capsicum is tender.
  7. Enjoy!!
