Your O-Grill (Of Course)

This dish is simple to prepare and doesn’t require any special skills to deliver a great result.

How To Make It

This delicious grilled pepper dish is a version of the classic vegetarian dish from the 1970s that you can prepare quickly on your O-Grill. It will have your mouth watering and invite compliments from your vegetarian guests, who will be sure to recognise it! Make sure you make some extra as your meat eating guests are sure to enjoy them too…

You can use any combination of nuts in the filling. Brazils, hazelnuts, cashews and peanuts are all good for this dish but avoid almonds as they are too hard to mill easily. Add a little curry powder if you prefer a more spicy flavor.

This is a perfect camping and picnic recipe – simply prepare the ingredients and pack them in ziplock bags or food containers and you can set up your O-Grill and enjoy them almost anywhere!


Step 1 - Mill The Bread & Nuts

Finely chop or crush the bread and nuts together to the consistency of fine breadcrumbs. It’s easier to chop them together than separately. You could use a pestle and mortar if you have one to do this.

Step 2 - Stir Fry Onions & Garlic

Stir fry the onions until they go clear then add the garlic and continue to fry for another minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool briefly.

Step 3 - Scoop Out the Peppers

Remove the tops of the peppers and put them to one side. Scoop outside the insides.

Step 4 - Fill the Peppers

Add all the other ingredients and mix them together in the pan. You can use any fresh herbs to your liking to customize the flavor. Fill the peppers with the mixture and add grated cheese on top.

Step 5 - Grill Them on Your O-Grill!

Brush your peppers and lids with a little olive oil and cook upright on your O-Grill on a low setting until the cheese starts to melt on top and the peppers are cooked through and starting to brown on the bottom. Grill the tops separately on the grill at the same time. You can brown the cheese on top with a gas torch as an option once the peppers are cooked.

Step 6 - Serve up a Feast!!

Place the tops back on the peppers and serve to your delighted guests!
