Step 1

Stuffed sweet peppers with spicy mayo - Step 1

Preheat oven to 180. Finely dice the mushrooms and shallow fry in a spoonful of butter and the oregano. If using a plain cream cheese you can add half a clove of garlic for a bit more flavour.

Step 2

Slice the peppers down the middle and remove the seeds. (Personally I struggled with this due to the shape of the peppers and nobody came to any harm with them left in!) I left the stalks on for decoration.

Step 3

Spoon the mushrooms equally between the 2 peppers then top with the cream cheese.

Step 4

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the peppers are just soft.

Step 5

To make the dip, just mix mayo with some habanero sauce to taste. Sweet chilli is easier to find and works just as well though.

This would make a nice main served with salad and rice.
