    Ooh I’d forgotten about stuffing capsicum! Can I dispense with the sultanas, eating them is like nails on a blackboard . . .the rest sounds pretty yum and no carbs! Yay!

    @Baino – I have several recipes for stuffed peppers…. I might come back to them again.

    @Darlene – I love a dish that I can prepare and stick in the oven, giving me time to clear up before I sit down to eat. 😀

    @Magpie – I am sure I have a vegan version somewhere, I must look it up.

    @WWW – Thanks for the idea.
