These petrifying peppers will make a real monster of a meal! Make sure you make our easy, spooky zombie peppers for the family tonight.
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Use a sharp kitchen knife to cut a spooky face into each pepper.
Cook the rice by following the instructions on the packet.
Fry the onions in 1 tbsp oil over a medium heat until see-through (about 5 minutes).
Add the cooked rice along with the grated beetroot, grated cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and fresh and/or dried herbs. Taste and add some black pepper if needed.
Mix well, then spoon into the peppers. Place the lids of the peppers back on top of the stuffed peppers.
Roast peppers in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until softened but still holding their shape.
Pop a zombie pepper on your plate and get stuck in to your stuffed-up pepper.
Power Up: Vary the stuffing by using leftover chilli con carne or veg chilli, veg-loaded couscous or pasta in tomato sauce!
