Since I am Greek, I have learned many good Greek recipes over the years! This is one of my favorites. It's a savoury combination of lamb, rice and feta cheese stuffed into capsicums and smothered with tomato sauce.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 medium green capsicums
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 250g lamb mince
  • 150g crumbled feta cheese
  • 300g passata or tomato puree
  • 1 cup (250ml) cold water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  2. Heat oil in a medium frypan over medium heat, add onion and cook for four minutes until soft. Stir in garlic and cook one minute.
  3. Slice tops evenly off the capsicums and remove seeds. Stand the capsicums upright in a 23x30cm baking dish.
