Method

  • Halve the bell peppers lengthwise.
  • Heat the oil and add the onions and garlic, cover and cook on low heat for a few minutes, until translucent.
  • Put 2 thirds of the cooked onion in a bowl, add the chickpeas and the sage. Mash roughly and stuff the peppers with this mixture.
  • Put the stuffed peppers in a heatproof dish, mix the rest of the onion and garlic with the tomatoes and herbs. Pour this around the peppers.
  • Bake for about half an hour, at 200C or Gas Mark 6, basting frequently to prevent the peppers from drying out.
  • Serve straight out of the oven with a side salad and some crusty bread.
