Jollof Rice and Moin Moin Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are nothing new, but it doesn't feature much in Nigerian cuisine. A shame, considering we have so many delicious things to stuff them with. In this case, I've used leftover jollof rice and moin moin. The jollof is made using brown rice (check out the full recipe here) which is perfect because you do need a slightly dense, mushy consistency to hold the dish together. And you can find the recipe for moin moin here.

This recipe came to mind because I had a ton of red peppers that I needed to use up. Not one to turn a blind eye to a good bargain, I came across a fruit & veg stall while ambling through Peckham one day, and saw that they were selling 10 red peppers for £1. Yes, you read that right. How could I resist? The standard thing would have been to blend it all up to use in stews etc, but I'm glad that inspiration struck and I made this instead. Red peppers, when roasted, are absolutely delectable. They get soft and sweet and succulent, with a more intense flavour than their raw counterpart.

These freeze really well, so are great for meal prep. Make a bunch of these and you've got lunch/dinner sorted for the next week. Simply reheat in the oven or microwave, and serve with a side of fresh salad.
