Method

  • Bring the millet to boil and simmer for about half and hour or until soft.
  • Whilst waiting for the millet to cook, slice the tops off the peppers and take out the seeds and pith. Also chop the spring onions and watercress or rocket.
  • Warm the peppers under the grill with just a few minutes on each side.
  • Drain the cooked millet except for a little water, and stir in the tahini.
  • tir in all the rest of the ingredients except the peppers.
  • Taste the millet stuffing and adjust seasoning if needed before filling the peppers with some of the millet mixture.
  • Serve up the remaining millet mixture on each plate with a stuffed pepper.
  • If you like, you may serve it with a tahini sauce made by diluting some tahini with a little lemon juice and tamari.
